Mentoring Eudyptula Challenge - 2

Eudyptula Challenge is started in end of 2014 and getting very popular among linux enthusiast. A lot of people registered, or by mean of join-in with Little Penguin, but about half of them didn't submit the first task.

Some important notes and comments you can find about eduptula in this link https://events.linuxfoundation.org/sites/events/files/slides/ec.pdf.

This time, I'm going to discuss about Task-02. This one is a very little task about building customer kernel.

Your task will start from downloading the kernel source, you can download it as .zip, but best and most recommended option is using git. Figure out how you can get link for latest version of kernel. One of the example could be -

git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git

This post and coming is intended to help of getting things easier on Kernel challenges, The Eudyptula Challenge.

But it will not give you the total solution, [however, you can find those by googling] but will try to help you how you can understand the problems and get the things easier.

Well now - the Eudyptula challenge is a list of tasks to learn linux kernel, its structure and development processes. Mainly its a bot, supplying and evaluating your tasks.

The first requirement to participate the challenge is to learn emailing as plain-text. Those who are well known of using sendmail from command line do know it by heart. But for modern young guys - you better use thunderbird, and set its settings as unchecked Compose message as HTML format.

On other hand, if you are using gmail on web by selecting Plain Text Mode while composing your email would give you same benefit.
