I'm sorry the question is kind of lame. I was ill for a few weeks and currently keep forgetting few important things.

I've downloaded Raspbian (Jessie) kernel based on instructions on RPi's Kernel Building page.

I used the same command written in there

git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux

I completely forgot in what directory the downloaded kernel would be placed into. Can someone please remind me where would it be?


When you clone a git repo (and don't specify a directory name) it is placed in the current working directory, in a folder named after the repository name. So in your case it will be in the directory linux a subdirectory of the directory you were in when you cloned the repo.

Since I don't know what directory you were using at the time, you can search for the linux directory with the following:

sudo find / -name "linux"
  • Thank you. I followed the guide in RPi homepage step-by-step and I didn't specify any directory name. I've found the dir using find but I actually used single quote. :) Jan 3 '17 at 4:33
