Compiling and installing

With the configuration now done, it is time to compile and install the kernel. Exit the configuration and start the compilation process:

TODO: verify this builds "Image" and dtbs

root #make
It is possible to enable parallel builds using make -jX with X being an integer 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/. This is handled by the make install command:

TODO: verify everything is installed to /boot/

root #make install

This will copy the kernel image into /boot/ together with the file and the kernel configuration file.
