I'm current on this step:
Quote:
Compiling and Installing

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

Code Listing 3.4: Compiling the kernel:

(Apple/IBM) # make && make modules_install

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


on this manual: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-ppc64.xml?part=1&chap=7


Here's is my question:
"make && make modules_install" worked fine, but I do not know how to "When the kernel has finished compiling, copy the kernel image to /boot". What are the exact commands to do this?

P.S. I am completely new Gentoo and Linux, so please, if possible, keep answers as simple and as step by step as possible


Thanks for the help,
Ben

It is something like this:

Code:
cp arch/powerpc/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-gentoo-2.6.34.1


Be sure to adjust the name to match your kernel version.

By the way, this is in the wrong forum. It probably should go in the "Installing Gentoo" forum.

The kernel image is the file vmlinux in the kernel source directory.

I'd recommend copying it to a name that's unique for this kernel. So if you're using 2.6.33, it would be something like this:
Code:
# cp /usr/src/linux/vmlinux /boot/kernel-2.6.33
[/i]

Hi,

Here is some documentation (extract from the PPC 32-bit handbook) which should ok : http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-ppc.xml?part=1&chap=7#compiling.

P-S : You should also take care about to use the compress or uncompressed binary kernel version depending on the boot loader you will install.
