In my previous article I was building SIPcrack from source on the Ubuntu 10.04 platform. I ran into a few erros during the build. The first error is explained here but after that I ran into one more.

I decided to make a post on recompiling your Ubuntu kernel after after taking a look at the instructions on the Ubuntu wiki. Although the instructions were correct it was a big jumbled mess and almost impossible to figure out what was what from the instructions. This post will cover recompiling the kernel that comes with Ubuntu. The reasons for doing this are to keep the current Ubuntu patches and configs and simply add some stuff of your own. This would be useful for adding a patch of some sort or adding support in the kernel .config for a piece of hardware or software which may not be enabled by default.
