extracting a beta Kernel rpm and adding to it
I am not sure if it can be done I downloaded the beta opensuse 11.1 ( I think that it is called) I am wondering if I can take the kernel rpm off the dvd that I burned then create a new kernel for my current opensuse. I went to Linux kernel.org and seen tha the newest kernel there is 2.6.27-rc7 . on the beta opensuse disk
the kernel is kernel-default-2.6.27-7.2.x86_64.rpm .So what I was thinking is instead of installing the whole beta OS I could just build my own Kernel and try it out that way. if this seems like a silly I dea forgive me because I am pretty new to Linux and am just trying to learn my way which is Visually lol.
if this is possible and not a huge waste of time, could someone please either explain to me how to do it or point me to the right web page that would explain how o do this lol
