So do I understand correctly that you will only get the settings-window after "make menuconfig", and nothing similar is actually even supposed to happen after "make oldconfig"?

Yep!  Only the main terminal window will be open during "make oldconfig" as it runs through the questions. If the versions are only off by a little, you may not see any changed configuration questions at all, and it will end as such.

"Make menuconfig" is where the settings can be accessed and changed at will.  (There are other options for changing settings as well in the guide).

Running "make oldconfig" while booted into the standard Debian kernel is where you likely ran into problems.  The 5.11.12 kernel has to be installed and running on your system when performing "make oldconfig", to draw from it's settings. You can always change back using grub at boot if you run into problems:)

*Edit - Guide updated to show that no extra window is opened during "make oldconfig"  Thank you for the suggestion!

Oki, so that's why no questions!

I'll probably be upgrading to a 5-kernel at some point, good to have more clarity on this. Thanks mate smile

Re: How To - Kernel Compile With Custom Options

Hey there!

At first: I am a frequent user of this guide, and thank you very much for your constant work on it!

Besides any controversy on security this may bring up:
Is anyone of you aware of a comprehensible guide on signing the kernel(-modules) created for use with secureboot? I know that all the tools needed for this are at hand in the repos, but I just seem to be unable to propperly use them.

Thanks in advance an keep safe and sound!

Re: How To - Kernel Compile With Custom Options

But that was already 7 months ago.
Whereby I always trust @towo. With "snake oil" he means "secureboot".   wink

Re: How To - Kernel Compile With Custom Options

Thanks, this will help me get stuff done.
Though I just still don`t know what I am doing there.

... get rid of "the snake oil" would be preferable. But I at least wanted to learn about signing and certificates.
And also the compay letting me this machine allowed me to dualboot, but won`t like me to disable secureboot.
I`m gonna ask them why!
