    Compiling a new kernel

    In theory, should the following produce an exact duplicate of my current kernel?

    make cloneconfig
    make modules
    make modules_install
    make bzImage
    make install
    In practice, will it?

    1) they can be combined like this:
    make cloneconfig modules bzImage modules_install install

    2) If cloneconfig does what the name says, yes. I've never tried it before myself.

    If you want to adjust the kernel as well before compiling it, it should be possible to do a:
    make cloneconfig menuconfig modules bzImage modules_install install
