Re: Compile new kernel with same configuration



 Thank you very much.

Then, if I want keep same kernel that I'm running now, I need:

cp /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/linux-2.6.18.tar.bz2 /root
cd /root
tar -xvf  linux-2.6.18.tar.bz2
cd linux-2.6.18

*[apply all redhat patches from /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES]*

[make my modifications]

cp /boot/config-2.6.18-194.8.1.el5 ./config

[compile the kernel]

Is it right?

Regards,
F.J

It sounds like you're looking in the right place to get the kernel source.
It gets installed in /usr/src/redhat/.  If you type:

ls /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES | grep -v patch

you'll see that there is a linux-2.6.xx.tar.bz2 kernel. All those patches
are simply the redhat changes to the vanilla kernel. The rpmbuild process
will take care of all that for you.
