Newb here. Need to update kernel for video card support. Have no idea where to start. Running Mandrake 9.2 with KDE 3.1, if it is of any help. Thanks

This is beyond the scope of one post, but check out DaOnes kernel compile guide for newbies in the slackware forum
--> http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=49035

Also might want to check out his guide with some more specifics on 2.6.x
--> http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=127095

That should get you started. Just remember: don't compile your root file system as a module! It must be in the kernel! This is one of the most common causes of kernel panics after a newbie kernel compile.

If the links don't work both threads are a sticky in the slackware forum.
