Talking Help Recompiling the Kernel


Hey everyone,

I'm currently setup with a Dual boot system .. one side using Winblows...and the other side using Slackware 10.... Using Lilo as my boot loader..

I've managed to Config my kernel (2.4.26) using the KDE Kernel Config tool, however.. it prompts me to do a " Make symlinks dep " however when I type that command in another session, it produces an error that says "not recognized as a command" ......... maybe i'm missing something here... but isnt that supposed to work?......

... I'm not a total n00b with Slackware... but I'm still struggling with it somewhat...so..I would appreciate any suggestions here.

Thanx!

perhaps a stupid question.. but are you typing "Make" or "make" and as far as i know symlinks dep isnt a valid target for the kernel tree

well in the kernel source directory type "make xconfig" and make your way down the tree to the ethernet devices, make sure yours is checked off as a module, then save it. Then just type make && make modules && make modules_install. your bzImage will be made and all the modules will be installed, then move your bzImage to /boot(or wherever) edit your lilo.config, run /sbin/lilo and all should be set
