RE: Using the 2.4 kernel on RH7.0


Based on your email, which encouraged me, I reloaded
the 2.4 kernel rpm ignoring the dependencies, and
with your modprobe pointer (thanks), 2.4.1 is up and running
(except for the NFS lock daemon).  Rather simple actually :)

Thanks and best regards,

I am running a kernel 2.4.3 on a guinness box without any (major)
problem but I did not get kernel 2.4 rpms. I downloaded the tarball
archive from ftp.kernel.org and compiled it by my-self. There is 2.2 and
2.4 entries in the lilo... I just dont want to have an rpm for my kernel.

If you want to run ipchains with 2.4 then just modprobe ipchains before
your ipchains-restore.
