I guess it helps to have ext4 compiled in the kernel..

It only needs to be a module, but then it must be present in your
initrd (mkinitrd -f /boot/initrd-`uname -r`.img `uname -r`, or
whatever kernel version you're making it for).

At the moment I see that once you
make install in the kernel source tree
fedora will automatically read the script to create
.img and so forth.


In your honest opinion what is the best way to handle
the old stale kernels in /boot i.g.(remove them without
generating a SIGSEGV).

I just leave them there until my /boot gets full.  If they're from
RPMs, I do a `yum remove kernel-<version>`, otherwise I just `rm *-

is there a way to tell yum "hey I have a source here, add it to the list"
instead of creating an rpm and then installing the rpm?
while following through git I usually have multiple kernels,
and usually end up just removing them through time.  In this case
as soon as I removed some old vmlinuz's and so forth was when I hit
this SIGSEGV(my guess is somewhere the system keeps account as to
what is put into /boot.)

Probably.  I don't use grubby (if needed, I write my own grub stanza).
You may have to use the source to find out.

Alright, so I can go ahead and remove grubby.
