I'd like to compile my own kernel. I want to use the default Fedora
version as base but tweak a few flags.
There is a procedure which describes how to do this at
http://www.howtoforge.com/kernel_compilation_fedora. Unfortunately, it's
almost a year old.
Is it [still] the right way to do this?
Assumptions I'm making (please correct if I'm wrong):
* loading .config (following the steps on that page) loads the default
Fedora-specified options, not vanilla kernel options.
* modules will be built into a separate directory (with the word
"custom" in it) so they won't interfere with official Fedora kernel
modules. This is kind of important since I might specify some options
that will make my new kernel unbootable - and I want to use the default
as backup if that happens.
