Architecture-Specific Targets

Each kernel architecture has a set of specific targets unique to it. The 32-bit Intel architecture has the following targets available.

Table 11.8. 32-bit Intel Architecture-Specific Targets

Target

Description

bzImage

Creates a compressed kernel image and places it in the arch/i386/boot/bzImage file. This is the default target for the i386 kernel build.

install

Installs the kernel image using the distribution-specific /sbin/installkernel program. Note that this does not install the kernel modules; that must be done with the modules_install target.

bzdisk

Creates a boot floppy image and writes it to the /dev/fd0 device.

fdimage

Creates a boot floppy image and places it in the file arch/i386/boot/fdimage. The mtools package must be present on your system in order for this to work properly.

isoimage

Creates a CD-ROM boot image and places it in the file arch/i396/boot/image.iso. The syslinux package must be present on your system in order for this to work properly.
