Translations:Kernel/Gentoo Kernel Configuration Guide/87/en
The process of compiling and installing kernels is outside the scope of this document; refer to the Kernel Upgrade Guide for general guidance. In short, the process to get a modified kernel is the following:
- mount /boot (if not already mounted)
- copy new kernel image to /boot
- make sure the bootloader will reference the new kernel
If one of those final stages has been missed, then the changes will not properly take effect.
