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?

I can't speak for Antonio; maybe he has plunged

into


Fedora and hasn't mastered the rpm and yum commands. (/I/ still have
trouble with them, sometimes.) But I have heard that compiling from
source gives you an application, or a kernel, optimized for your

machine


in a way no binary can match. Is that true? If it is, then those
instructions will prove very valuable.

I agree with that part(But I have heard that compiling from

source gives you an application, or a kernel, optimized for your

machine


in a way no binary can match.). I have Mplayer-1.0pre7 installed via

by compiling and xine with rpm. I do know how to
work
out dependencies and I can resolve most of the
problems but they say that a compiled kernel will
work
better than the stock kernel provided by Fedora on
our
machines. I also want to learn more about linux and
compiling the kernel.



Then, too, there's the matter of wanting to load
into the kernel certain non-standard modules, and even to run the kernel

in


four-stack mode for some purposes. (NDISwrapper springs to mind.) I'd
like a quick how-to on that alone, or at least a link to some clear
instructions.

Thanks to Rick, Temlakos, Kam and Robert for their
kind help, I am now running 2.6.11.7.  I never thought
I could do it.  Thanks for helping out.

[student rio ~]$ uname -r
2.6.11.7
[student rio ~]$

That's what the list is for, Antonio. Glad to hear you got it working. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- - Rick Stevens, Senior Systems Engineer rstevens vitalstream com - - VitalStream, Inc. http://www.vitalstream.com - - - - Denial.
