Compiling kernel effects in Mandrake 8.2 and one other thing
My question is when I compile 2.4.19 in Mandrake which is using a 2.4.18 variant I think, will I loose all of the support for my hardware, what effect does compiling a kernel have on Mandrake? Also the reason that I am compiling this kernel is that when Mandrake installs it leaves the usr/src/linux file structure empty, as in there is not a linux folder. I need these files because I have the linux drivers from linksys for the wireless usb, w-lan something or another, and to install these it needs all of the files in the linux folder that is not there.
Thanks in advance,
