@artem: Thanks for the input. Actually, that really helps me as I am not experienced in these sort of things, and getting advice on how to systematically search for errors is highly appreciated.
However, it will take some time before I can really sit down and approach this, as this will be a rather lengthy procedure for a layman like me (it's ~10 years since I last compiled a kernel
) and I am rather involved at work these days.
@TwinFinity: Will try this when I get home
