instead, you can also say
make dep bzImage modules modules_install
If you're in a really really adventurous mood (and have a bootable
rescue CD / floppy nearby), you could edit /etc/lilo.conf first, then
make dep bzImage modules modules_install && lilo && reboot
- but you won't get a chance to think about rebooting ;)
If you have X, to configure the kernel, you can also use
but you need to have your DISPLAY set, and remote X forwarding turned
on (with SuSE, at least - not with Debian).
as root, and
xhost + localhost
as the user who started X if you don't get a picture with make xconfig.
Also, though you may not need the kernel sources in the /usr/src
hierarchy, some programs you compile (glibc, I think) might look for
