Hi, what of the 3 oficially documented ways to compile a custom kernel (using fedora sorce tree, using exploded git three, using vanilla upstream) is the best way to reuse the fedora patches and optimization already done by kernel team? i like the overall performance of the default workstation kernel, but i am curious about other not supported yet features, i.e. MuQSS scheduler, i just want to patch the kernel and recompile it to have these features but i dont want to lose the benefits of fedora developed kernel optimizations and patches.

Use the Fedora source tree. See this wiki entry for hints on how to do that.

Florian, i don't understand your answer, a link to a specs file? what do am i suppose to do with that? review line by line to make sure my specs file is identical? If posible i want this: 1) Initial Compile sources = vanilla kernel + fedora patches/optimizations 2) My Compile sources= Step 1 + My custom patches/optimizations.

From 2 i will hapilly compile a fine tunned kernel. regards.
