recompiling Linux kernel

recompiling Linux kernel

does anyone have the settings to recompile a linux kernel using icc/ifc instead of the gnu compilers with openmp stuff??

I didn't think any of the Linux kernel was in Fortran!

My understanding is that the current version of icc is not yet capable of recompiling the linux kernel, but that is a goal of the next release. You should go ask in the C++ forum to get more info.

Besides not using Fortran, the linux kernel can't use openmp. It's at a much lower level.

icc may have been used to build certain kernel versions with specific sets of patches, but that doesn't have much general use at this time. I see that you have taken the advice to go to the C forum to ask further.
