download precompiled kernel


Hey!
Can anyone give me an URl of a web site which contains precompiled kernels? I think that kernel.org doesn't have any precompiled, just source. I do not want to compile the source, I want precompiled, like vmlinuz please help! I searched google but I haven't found anything...

they would need to be specifically built for your distro vendor. you can't just grab one off of a dusty shelf...

If you've installed linux on your machine and are able to boot into it then certainly you have a precompiled kernel installed on your machine. Having said that, what is that you are looking for exactly ?

If you do not want to compile from source and want a precompiled kernel, you already have it on your machine !?

Probably, you should explain what is that you are trying to do and why you nedd ehat you are searching for and one of us can help you with that.

If I remember it right, slackware 10.1 is packaged with a 2.6 kernel both precompiled and source. I'm not sure the CD image number it is on, I think it is on CD1. On CD1 you should be able to find a directory named linux-2.6..... and that would contain the precompiled binaries as well as source.
