RE: Howto set kernel makefile to use particular gcc

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



But I was doing it all that I was doing with 2.4 i.e. the follwoing steps to build the kernel.
I also found these steps are followed in the 2.6.x kernel build howto's too.

Do you mean, to rebuild the 2.6.x kernel,

	make CC=<path of gcc> would be enough?

I am just thinking whether I am doing something redundent.
