Automated Kernel Install

Does anyone see a problem with the following?:

make mrproper &&
yes ""|make config &&
cp kernel-config .config &&
make dep &&

I recall that the yes "" was pulled from the chap5 quite awhile ago as
it did cause some changes to the headers being installed, yet with the
copying of a pre-made config to .config, would that eliminate the
problems? I've tried skipping the make {,menu,old}config but make dep
bombs immediately. I'm not trying to install headers, but the whole
kernel, yet without user interaction. Any ideas?



The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by
the Prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the
government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be
enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in
this country is closely connected with this.
