kernel version "collision"
I have Slackware 12.1 installed .. I decided to create a new kernel for experimentation so I acquired latest source from kernel.org (220.127.116.11) OK, built the kernel, modules etc. Upon 'make modules_install', I realized, when completed, my current system's libraries would be overwritten .. which is what I didn't want.
I found a few ways of renumbering the kernel in include/config/kernel.release & KERNELRELEASEVERSION contained in system Makefile.
Thus my questions ..
1. What should my 'experiment' kernel number be to avoid conflict with my 'running' system? (i 2.6.24.rc?)
2. Are there any other files, beyond what's listed above, that need to be changed?
3. Upon renumbering, will the make/install automatically deposit files in the appropriate place?
thanks in advance !!!!
