I am using Ubuntu 12.04 as host, and I plan to compile a new kernel. I downloaded the Linux-Libre kernel. When compiling the kernel, I would like to "Load alternate configuration".

I have an alternate kernel config, which is not the default Ubuntu config. How to use the alternate configuration ?

I have an alternate kernel config, which is not the default Ubuntu config. How to use the alternate configuration ?

It is as simple as copying the alternate .config to the top-level linux kernel source directory. You can check if it's the top-level by verifying with ls that the Kbuild or Kconfig files exist in the directory.

Then compile your kernel as usual (make-kpkg, etc.).
