There are a lot of resources online for compiling the Linux Kernel.

For example, check out the kernel documentation on Linux From Scratch.

Linux From Scratch is also a great resource if you plan on making your own distro.

  • I may look into that. Thank You – lebro111 Dec 6 at 11:43
git clone --depth 1 --branch linux-4.19.y https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git
cd linux
cp /boot/config-$(uname -r) .config
#use a config editing tool to automatically make it compatible with the version, and change any settings you want.
