Outlines how to patch a kernel for ACPI support.

Show Excerpt

nger use .date to distinguish kernel builds. It was too frustrating to have 030627a, 032627b (etc) as I tried to figure things out. I now use names, in alphabetical order, starting with the kernel build "alien". I'm going to leave the date option in though as I still think it's a good way to do things. My current kernel, 2.6.6, is "Elrond." The machine itself is "Smeagol."

Note Kernel compile help   For non-Debian instructions see the Appendix "Appendix B". For more information on how to compile the kernel The Debian Way please read Creating custom kernels with Debian's kernel-package system

12. Install the new kernel

I like to configure lilo on my own, but do whatever tickles your fancy.

  *  cd /usr/src   *  dpkg -i kernel-image-<version>.<date>-10.00.Custom-i386.deb At this point I decline all the lilo updates and configure it myself by hand.   * configure lilo by hand: vi /etc/lilo.conf   *&nbs
