It is a valid target when you get the sources elsewhere, add bits and
No. It's a valid Makefile target for all Linux kernels, including SuSE
It is not needed if you just install the source rpm from suse, which comes
already cleaned. It can delete customizations, too: the only time I used
it deleted my own config files and notes, and some of suse's files. I had
to reinstall the sources. It deletes *anything* it thinks doesn't belong
on the kernel.
No. It deletes everything that can be reproduced, including a .config, a
version.h, and utsrelease.h. That's the purpose of this Makefile target.
After running a "make mrproper", the source tree is in a clean state.
There's no need to reinstall the source, all Linux kernel source is
still on disk (however, the kernel source is unconfigured at that point).
If you need to clean a previous compilation, use "make clean". That's more
No. For instance, configure the kernel source in the source tree. Later
on, try to use a build directory. It won't work and the kernel build
system will tell you something like this:
make -C /kernel/source O=/kernel/build
Using /kernel/source as source for kernel
/kernel/source is not clean, please run 'make mrproper'
in the '/kernel/source' directory.
I have been making my own kernels for years and I never use mrproper. SuSE
does not recomend it in their own instructions. It's not even mentioned.
So what? Many things aren't mentioned in the SuSE documentation, but
nevertheless those things can be quite useful. I use "make mrproper" a lot.
