Archck custom kernel

I want to customize the archck kernel...

I am not sure how to to that...

i was thinking the simpliest way to d by :

1) installing current kernel26archck

2) modify the .config in /usr/src

3) make && make modules

4) Send vmlinuz-Custom to /boot/

Am i right ?

Thanks for your answer!

Re: Archck custom kernel

Arch does not install the kernel source, so you're missing an important step (2.5, I think smile ) - download the source from kernel.org.

If you want your new kernel package to remain under pacman's control, use a PKGBUILD instead - I like dibble's one here.

Re: Archck custom kernel

Ok thanks...

What i did

1) I get the abs tree

2) Copy /var/abs/extra/kernel/kernel26arch to ~/MyKernel

3) cp my custom .config file to ~/MyKernel/config

4) Edit PKGBUILD : pkgname=MyKernelName

5) Redone md5 check

6) makepkg !

Done

Re: Archck custom kernel

archck supports fbsplash, not bootsplash, so I'm not sure what you are trying to do. What's the last thing on the screen when it freezes?
