First of all take a look on manuals or books. There are a lot of them in internet. Here is a good example in my opinion


Also, after extracting kernel sources from archive, you can find in the folder the README file. There are brief overview of main steps.

How to compile linux i put the kernel in a sony memory stick pro duo i need real help i know C++ but not linux

Thanks In advance

A very comprehensive documentation on how to build a Linux system from sources is Linux from scratch.


This explains all the raw stuff that is needed. To bring the system to some use you will have to add a graphical user interface or some server programs like a web server or a mail server. All those additional steps are covered in the sister projects of Linux from scratch.

The main page lists them all.
