Hints for building and integrating a new kernel into the cryptobox:
1) get the source
download it from http://kernel.org
2) configure
- copy the current kernel config from the cryptobox/trunk/kernel directory to the kernel source directory as ".config"
- make menuconfig
- make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --revision=cryptoboxY.X kernel_image
(replace "Y.X" by the current cryptobox release)
3) integrating
- copy the debian kernel package (see above) to cryptobox/trunk/kernel
- copy the new kernel config too
- change the "unpackdebs" setting in etc-default.d/dfs-cbox.conf
- add the new kernel package and the config file to the repository (svn add)
4) test it

BEWARE: the uml kernel does not work correctly - see ../hints/starting_uml.txt for details
- the actual kernel configuration is included in the kernel-image package
