Hi all
I just installed Linux Redhat Enterprise AS 4
in /usr/src I have 2 directories : kernels and redhat
in kernels I have 3 directories :
2.6.9-5.EL-hugemem-i686
2.6.9-5.EL-i686
2.6.9-5.EL-smp-i686

What are all these ? Which one is my kernel?
And if I want to compile the kernel , which one I must use?

here is some informations :
AMD 64 3000+
2 HDD 120 Gb RAID stripe
uname -a =====> ... i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
uname -r =====> 2.6.9-5.EL

Your using the 2.6.9-5.EL-i686.

2.6.9-5.EL-hugemem-i686 = Most likely handles more memory, probably above 4GB or so.
2.6.9-5.EL-i686 = The one your apparently using now.
2.6.9-5.EL-smp-i686 = Compiled specifically for dual or more processor support.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
