    Lycoris Kernel Compiling (Redmond Linux)


    I recently began readying an old Compaq for use as a coffeeshop music server and homework writing, oldskool console playing machine. Before installing it I wanted to make use of any optimizations a i686 kernel might have over the stock kernel.

    My distro of choice has been Lycoris because of it's similarity to Windows. I've heard though that it isn't so easy to recompile the Redmond Linux core. Is this just a myth or is there some special procedure I need to follow? If possible, step-by-step instructions would be excellent, since I'm new to compiling code.
