    So I've been trying to compile or get a binary of the just-released Linux 3.0 kernel. I have a few questions. One, can I just run this on it's own in a VM or something? And two, can someone please elaborate on how to compile it? Right now, I get this error:
    Code:
    /Users/tattar8/Downloads/linux-3.0-rc1/scripts/Kbuild.include: No such file or directory
    /bin/sh: /Users/tattar8/Downloads/linux-3.0-rc1/scripts/gcc-goto.sh: No such file or directory
    /Users/tattar8/Downloads/linux-3.0-rc1/Makefile:327: /Users/tattar8/Downloads/linux-3.0-rc1/scripts/Kbuild.include: No such file or directory
    make: *** empty variable name.ÂÂStop.
    make[1]: *** [scripts_basic] Error 2
    make: *** No rule to make target `include/config/auto.conf', needed by `include/config/kernel.release'.ÂÂStop.

    Do you know what a kernel is?

    It should be compiled on the developer computer anyways. Too much missing stuff over there. Where did you find it?

    Note the 3.0/2.6/2.8 depending on how you want to call it hasn't even been released yet so there's no point in compiling it unless you're really interested in being an alpha tester

    Thanks. When I have some spare time I'll give it a go. Besides new kernel = new everything
