I run across such a weird problem:
According to this:
The kernel and modules must be moved to special locations in order to be used,
1. make modules_install 2. make install
The first will create the /lib/modules/ directory and place the modules there. The second make target will,
1. Move the kernel, bzImage, to /boot and rename it vmlinuz-<revision>, 2. Move the System.map to /boot, 3. Create initrd.img-<revision> 4. Copy .config to /boot, renaming it to config-<revision> 5. Modifies the boot loader configuration file /boot/grub/menu.lst so that the new kernel is listed on the boot menu.
I configure and compile the latest Linux kernel 3.15, and run
make install to install the new kernel. Everything seems OK except for the .config file is not copied to
Why is the .config file under the root directory of the source tree not copied to /boot ?
PS. My running OS is fedora 20.
