Now that you have created a kernel configuration that you wish to use,
you need to build the
kernel. This is as simple as entering a one-word command:
SYMLINK include/asm -> include/asm-i386
SPLIT include/linux/autoconf.h -> include/config/*
will cause the kernel build system to use
the configuration you have selected to build a kernel and all modules needed to support that configuration.
While the kernel is building,
will display the individual file names of
what is currently happening, along with any build warnings or errors.
If the kernel build finished without any errors, you have successfully
created a kernel image. However, it needs to be installed properly
before you try to boot from it. See Chapter 6,
Installing and Booting From a Kernel
for how to do this.
It is very unusual to get any build errors when building a released kernel
version. If you do, please report them to the Linux kernel developers so
they can be fixed.
