Configured and compiled my first Linux kernel yesterday to fix snap support on the . I expected the kernel build process and tooling to be a pain but it’s actually very nice.

I also didn’t know this, but most distros keep your kernel source in /usr/src/linux so you can reconfigure and recompile it at will.

Highly recommended experience: I learned more about Linux internals than I did by installing Arch.
