2/6/2011 RAF - Recommend in the "build the kernel" option: since you told us to rename .local to .mycustomkernel (or what have you), just tell us to go build the firmware right away. As it is now, you have to get down to the "install the kernel" section before I realized that I had to rebuild the firmware.

2/6/2011 RAF - In "install the new kernel," suggest putting the paragraph, "If you changed the name of your kernel as requested,..." in order first, above the one-liner that just installs the kernel. For the one-liner, say "If you just rebuilt the kernel only, do this..."

2/6/2011 RAF - The full kernel build process took 1hr 45min on a OptiPlex 755 w/reasonably fast SATA drive and dual core processor.

10-apr-2011 aakolov - should the pure vanilla kernel be built the same way or there is a special approach for that ?

--Smouch (talk) 11:45, 21 February 2015 (UTC)I would really like to see a page describing how to do non-fedora specific kernel development on a Fedora machine. IOW, I wish to be able submit patches into the non-Fedora specific kernel development tree - you know, torvalds git repo - but, am constantly fighting to reconcile the generic instructions (for example: [1]) and performing testing of those modifications on my Fedora machine. For some reason, the two sets of instructions (this and that) are somehow subtly conflicting.
