Kernel update


Start with:
% emerge -u gentoo-sources
% eselect kernel list
% cd /usr/src/linux
% make menuconfig

% make && make modules_install

File systems –>
Filesystem in Userspace support (automount ntfs3g)

% cp arch/x86_64/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-3.1.6-gentoo
% nano -w /boot/grub/grub.conf
% module-rebuild populate

After kernel update emerge nvidia-drivers
Remove old kernel
% emerge -P gentoo-sources

Remove the bzImage file for the kernel /boot
Using old kernel .config to configure a new one
% cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.9-gentoo-r2
% cp ../linux-2.6.9-gentoo-r1/.config .
% make oldconfig

A much safer upgrading method is to copy your config as previously shown, and then simply run make menuconfig. This avoids the problems of make oldconfig mentioned previously, as make menuconfig will load up your previous configuration as much as possible into the menu.
