I have just compiled a kernel (latest 5.8.4) on my machine for the first time today, so am complete newbie to this. Pl. bear.
I have compiled the kernel, added the modules.
I am at the last step in this tutorial:
where it says to update bootloader configuration.
My question is:
Do I just add the two entries for my custom kernel to /boot/grub/grub.cfg
linux /vmlinuz-linux-jwr initrd /initramfs-linux-jwr.img
and then do update-grub? Or do I edit something in /etc/default/grub? Or do I edit /etc/grub.d? Or do I follow this advise:
- The user can create a custom file in which the user can place his own menu entries. This file will not be overwritten. By default, a custom file named 40_custom is available for use in the /etc/grub.d folder.
Thanks in advance
