Projects / install_latest_kernel


install_latest_kernel automates the process of fetching, patching, configuring, building, and installing Linux kernels and updating bootloaders. It is designed for people that often install the latest kernel and get a little bit bored by the standard routine. It is not suitable for newbies and requires a working setup, a kernel configuration file, and the ability to read scripts and apply patches.
