I don't mean this to be in any way an offence, but I'm just wondering so many people say kerna
l instead of kerne
l ? I understand English isn't the native language of many members of this forum but this is a very often met mistake.
is the kernal is same for all OS (like mandrake ,suse,redhat etc)?
Theoretically, you, as a end-user, can have installed several distros on your machine and for each one to compile the same kernel, downloaded from kernel.org (the so called pristine sources) and this way you could say that you have the same kernel on each distro. Otherwise, what Oliv' replied is perfectly true.
