have big problems on this issue. My original

kernel is 2.4.18-14. I do not get any image files installed in /boot and neither /boot/grub/grub.conf or /etc/grub.conf are updated when installing kernel 2.6.4. If anyone has done this upgrade and have time to follow the steps I have done, I would be happy to know what
I have done wrong.

The steps I have done is:


downloaded kernel linux 2.6.4.tar.gz
downloaded module-init-tools-3.0-pre10.tar.gz
downloaded modutils-2.4.21-23.src.rpm

tar xvfz module-init-tools-3.0-pre10.tar.gz
cd module-init-tools-3.0-pre10
./configure --prefix=/sbin
make
make install
./generate-modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf

Installing modutils-2.4.21-23.src.rpm:
rpm -i modutils-2.4.21-23.src.rpm
rpmbuild -bb /usr/src/redhat/SPECS//modutils.spec
rpm -Fi


/usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/modutils-2.4.21-23.i386.rpm

Installing the kernel: (used directory
/home/src/kernel)
gunzip linux-2.6.4.tar.gz
tar xvf linux-2.6.4.tar
cd linux-2.6.4

Making /home/src/kernel/linux-2.6.4/.config
cp
/usr/src/linux-2.4/configs/kernel-2.4.18-686.config /home/src/kernel/linux-2.6-3/.config
make oldconfig

edited line in .config, CONFIG_EXT3_FS=m to
CONFIG_EXT3_FS=y
Edited the Makefile:  EXTRAVERSION = -skim-ch6
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
make install
mkdir /sys

Editing /etc/rc.sysinit:
After line 'action $"Mounting proc filesystem: "
mount -n -t proc /proc /proc' put in line 'action $"Mounting sysfs filesystem: " mount -n -t sysfs /sys /sys'

After failing I tried to edit the .config file
'CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SD=y and then run:
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
make install
This did not make any difference.

Contents of /boot:

boot.b
chain.b
config-2.4.18-14
config-2.4.18-14debug
config-2.4.18-14uml
grub
initrd-2.4.18-14debug.img
initrd-2.4.18-14.img
kernel.h
lost+found
message
message.ja
module-info
module-info-2.4.18-14
module-info-2.4.18-14debug
module-info-2.4.18-14uml
os2_d.b
System.map
System.map-2.4.18-14
System.map-2.4.18-14debug
System.map-2.4.18-14uml
vmlinux-2.4.18-14
vmlinux-2.4.18-14debug
vmlinuz
vmlinuz-2.4.18-14
vmlinuz-2.4.18-14debug
vmlinuz-2.4.18-14uml

I install 2.6.4 on a RH9 and these were my steps.

Put my linux-2.6.4.tar.gz on /usr/src

tar -zxvf linux-2.6.4.tar.gz && cd linux-2.6.4
make xconfig
(When xconfig finished)
make && make modules && make modules_install
mv arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/bzImage-2.6.4
mv System.map /boot/System.map-2.6.4
ln -s System.map-2.6.4 System.map

Then I reconfigure my /etc/lilo.conf
I don't use grub, so I cannot help you on this step.

Best regards

I thought with 2.6 you no longer need to do "make modules" and modules_install. Any other's successfully installing 2.6.4 on RH9? What, if anything, did you have to do to make it work???
