Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Each distribution has some specific tools to build a custom kernel from the sources. 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 www.kernel.org (vanilla kernel) so that you are independent from the kernels supplied by your distribution. It also shows how to patch the kernel sources if you need features that are not in there."

The way I do it

I have implemented the kernel compilation as a function in my admin.sh script as followed:

k() {
cd /usr/src/linux
make menuconfig
make
sudo cp arch/x86_64/boot/bzImage /boot/linux
sudo make modules_install

# additional modules you need for your system
#cd /usr/src/modules/et131x
# sudo make
# sudo make modules_install

#cd /usr/src/modules/rt2500
# sudo make
# sudo make install

#sudo vmware-config.pl default
}
