Building a custom kernel with directions from Fedora



The directions at the link

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Building_a_custom_kernel

work great for building a custom kernel from Fedora source rpm.  With
one gotcha:  they don't build the firmware and the kernel won't
install unless the firmware is present (or you build it as a binary
blob into the kernel which I didn't want to do).

So the example command that reads 

rpmbuild -bb --with baseonly --without debuginfo --target=`uname -m`
kernel.spec

should be 

rpmbuild -bb --with baseonly --with firmware --without debuginfo
--target=`uname -m` kernel.spec

and then everything works fine.

A big thank you to the person who wrote those instructions, they are
excellent!
