Hi all, i have a question about linux 2.4.18-3 kernel and 2.4.18-10 kernel :-). I installed linux rh 7.3 about three days ago and things are going fine :-). I learnt how to use rpm, rpm --rebuild -- target, tar, and some other basic things and that is it :-( i wish time would stand still so i can learn more in a single instant :-). Where e-nuff jabber.
1. For the kernel, is the rpm source file better then the regular rpm?
2. In the source kernel file, are there the kernel headers and so on?
3.when upgradeing the kernel from source is it better to use
rpm --rebuild --target athlon ( if you have a athlon system ) instead of, rpm --rebuild --target i686. well from what I've learned
i686 work better for (pentium) and athlon work better for (athlon).
I don't know if what I've learned stand good e-nuff but i hope i'm right :-D.
4.If you have a magically way of upgrading your kernel or have successfully upgraded a kernel from 2.4.18-3 to 2.4.18-10 manully please let me know your secert before I upgrade thank you.
