Proper process for installing latest kernel from kernel.org?

What's the proper process for installing the latest kernel from kernel.org?

I've searched around a bit on Debian docs and random places but everything is outdated or doesn't seem to be relevant.

Edit: Just saw https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=564 so I'll give that a shot.

I've updated augmented the thread you mentioned with a script I wrote way back. HTH!

Thank you for the commented script Dutch_Master.

I'm looking at compiling the latest stable though, and I'll update with my results after successful testing.

https://www.debian.org/releases/stable/ … 06.html.en offers insight into packaging and thus easier management, although I haven't figured it out yet, or if it's applicable to Devuan (I don't think they've diverged too much at this point.)

My aim is to be able to pull the latest stable, compile, and management.

Perhaps worth noting I never got the "Debian way" of building a kernel to work (i.e. creating a .deb kernel package), I always used the 'direct' method. It also allowed me to install the binary nVidia GPU drivers fairly easily, at the time ATI (later part of AMD) wasn't too keen on providing Linux drivers for their GPU range.

I've used this guide in the past for creating kernel packages the debian way. I think it still works.

Hm.. I just checked and kernel-package is available in ceres (sid), ascii (stretch) backports and jessie, but it's not in beowulf or buster. Not sure what to make of that.
