Ok thanks for these infos i will check it out
When saying automatic i was referring to kernel updates in package repositories (with apt or dnf) where auto download and install can be configured for security updates...i was thinking about applying config options but i guess they are already compiled?
Isnt there a tool that would download new kernel based on repository security updates and that would compile it with a provided config file?
I can use a bash script or ansible role but i dont see how to keep close to the official kernel distribution updates automatically...
