Question is there a REPO for kernel Versions; want to update using Yum


Currently have 2.6.27.19-170.2.35 fc10.X86_64 installed.
Have been trying to install 2.6.28.8 which is stable and has a bug fix to address task scheduling during SMP ops.
If I enable "developmental source" under Fedora 10, i get
2.6.29 rc8 git 2 which locks up my pc as soon as it starts to boot;

I've managed to reboot into 2.6.27 & wipe the 2.6.29

Question : does a rpm of 2.6.28.8 exist & how do I get to it.

I have found a tarball of it , but unpacking & building
that way is beyond my skill -set.

You really have to list the -patch number with the kernels you try. There tend to be a LOT of them before a full release. You can try a few more of the .29 kernels here:

The absence of the .28 kernels would lead to me to believe that RH based systems had some sort of issue with it (not uncommon).

Sorry this won't help you but I am happy that Slackware includes stock (not patched) kernels.

That make things really easier:
cd /kernel/source
zcat /proc/config.gz > .config
make oldconfig
make
make modules_install
cp System.map /boot/System.map_name
cp path/to/bzImage /boot/Kernel_name
cp .config /boot/Config_name
nano /etc/lilo.conf
lilo -t
lilo

Lazlow,
I dug deeper into the link you provided,
There is a 64 bit version,
I downloaded 2.6.29-3.fc10.x86_64.rpm
But it failed a dependency check.
needing kernel firmware >= 2.6.29-3

I found that under " noarch "

But in won't install ; giving a "not signed" error msg.

is there a way to have yum force it signed or not?

I think this is the only thing holding up the process.

Assuming you have downloaded it (desktop or wherever) you can always install it via rpm with the -- force option.

Will probably wait until FC11 Beta hits the street,
have a spare WD160 G HD, that I can "hot swap" in & out
when I have time to tinker.
