March 21, 2011 Leave a comment

Installing the new 2.6.38 kernel is pretty straightforward in Debian 6.

First make sure you have the following packages installed:

wget tar bzip2 build-essential libncurses-dev kernel-package fakeroot

Then do this:

wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/linux-2.6.38.tar.bz2
tar jxvf linux-2.6.38.tar.bz2
cp /boot/config-$(uname -r) /usr/src/linux-2.6.38/.config
cd linux-2.6.38; make menuconfig
make-kpkg clean
fakeroot make-kpkg –initrd –revision=custom.1.0 kernel_image

to install

dpkg -i ../linux-image-2.6.38_custom.1.0_*.deb
