444A much safer upgrading method is to copy your config as previously shown, and
445then simply run <c>make menuconfig</c>. This avoids the problems of <c>make
446oldconfig</c> mentioned previously, as <c>make menuconfig</c> will load up your
447previous configuration as much as possible into the menu. Now all you have to
448do is go through each option and look for new sections, removals, and so on. By
449using <c>menuconfig</c>, you gain context for all the new changes, and can
450easily view the new choices and review help screens much easier. You can even
451use this for upgrades such as 2.6.8 to 2.6.9; just make sure you read through
452the options carefully. Once you've finished, compile and install your kernel as
453normal.
