Re: Proper way to install new kernel 2.6.11.7 into Fedora Core 3

Dear all,
   I was afraid to update to a newer kernel with all
the messages that the system won't boot but I am
taking a risk.  I have downloaded 2.6.11.7.tar.bz2 and
extracted it.  I read the README and have done the
following:
make mrproper
make xconfig
make dep
make clean
make bzImage

What else do i need to do? I am still running
2.6.9-1.667. I need to manually edit /boot/grub.conf
to put the new kernel.


What advice can you give me?

Do I need to do a modules install? or something like
that.

I appreciate all the help that you can provide.

You don't need the "make dep" or "make clean" steps with 2.6 kernels. Simply:

	make mproper
	make xconfig
	make bzImage
	make modules
	make modules_install
	make install

That should do it all for you.  Double check your /boot/grub/grub.conf
file to verify that the new kernel got installed.

Of course, why don't you just "yum update kernel" and use the
precompiled binary 2.6.11 kernel for FC3 from the official repositories?
