Description of problem:
The instructions for building a custom Kernel seem to be 
a bit wrong (this also applies to the printed documentation,
obviously):

Customization guide RH9.0, Appendix A, Section 2, point 5 and 6
are more or less inverted.

http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-9-Manual/custom-guide/s1-custom-kernel-modularized.html

The 'make clean' should be run before 'make dep', *not after*
'make dep' because otherwise there will be unrecoverable errors
during compilation, e.g. the .h file for the names of devices will no
longer exist after a 'make clean'.

This seems inconsistent with the docs that come with the kernel.

Reassigning to new owner to confirm.
Comment 2 John Ha 2005-06-20 14:05:49 EDT
Thank you for your report. 

Unfortunately, the Red Hat Linux 9 documentation has reached end-of-life and
will no longer be updated.

Additionally, instructions on building custom kernels have been removed from Red
Hat Enterprise Linux documentation to remain consistent with our Global Support
Services policies regarding kernel support. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Thanks again for the report!
