 Re: upgrading to 4.0-STABLE
Author: gill

In the Makefile from Joe Mock referenced in the article, there is a section to make

clobber:
clean
rm -rf /usr/src/*

what situation would this be used for?

I used it without fully thinking about it / understanding it and now that i've got plenty of time to think about it (as I try to reconstruct my kernel config files from scratch), I'm wondering when it would be the *right* thing to do?

comments?
