compiling 2.6.26 vanilla on hardy - ubuntu way

This article is about compiling a kernel on Ubuntu systems. It describes how to build a custom kernel using the latest unmodified kernel sources from (vanilla kernel) so that you are independent from the kernels supplied by your distribution.

cd /usr/src
wget --continue
tar jxvf linux-
ln -s linux- linux
cd linux
cp /boot/config-`uname -r` ./.config
make menuconfig
make-kpkg clean
fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-custom kernel_image kernel_headers
cd ..
dpkg -i linux-image-*
shutdown -r now

you can install the headers too from /usr/src/linux-headers-*
in my case i can show you how the packages are named
ls *.deb
