Linux At the time I was writing this article, the Linux kernel 2.4.17 was released only 3 days ago and these holly days you may find some more time to experiement with it. The following article includes step-by-step instructions on how to compile a Linux 2.4.X kernel, an article mostly targetting people who have never dared to compile their own kernel yet. Read on and we promise, it is not that hard to do so.

..how deficient is Linux compared to HP-UX and Solaris: in HP-UX the kernel compilation is seamless: set the parameters, and run two commands (without arguments). In Solaris it's even simpler, you just edit /etc/system and reboot. (actually, if you use a debugger intelligently, sometimes you don't even need to reboot, but that defeats the "ease of use" point).

Oh well. Back to Heroes 1. It's more fun than compiling a kernel, and the music is way better.
