Compiling and installing

Now that the kernel is configured, it is time to compile and install it. Exit the configuration and start the compilation process:

root #make && make modules_install
It is possible to enable parallel builds using make -jX with X being the number of parallel tasks that the build process is allowed to launch. This is similar to the instructions about /etc/portage/make.conf earlier, with the MAKEOPTS variable.

When the kernel has finished compiling, copy the kernel image to /boot:

root #cp vmlinux /boot/kernel-3.16.5-gentoo
