- ‘When recompiling your kernel, you'll need to set several things explicitly.’
- ‘You will have to recompile the entire program, specifying which modules you do and don't want to include when running configure.’
- ‘The faster chip also requires that the operating system and applications that run on top of it be recompiled for 64-bit processing.’

- ‘It's basically just the DOS version recompiled to work on Windows.’
A recompilation of a computer program.
- ‘This porting effort could be as simple as a recompile, link and run, or it could require changing some assembler code from one platform to another.’
- ‘All of my hardware was detected and set up except my IDE-CDR, which would require a kernel recompile to burn CDs with it.’
- ‘This requires a kernel recompile so we'll leave it for a while yet and do some more thinking in the meantime.’
