It depends on which rpm based distro you are using.
In Opensuse, the compiled rpm will end up in /usr/src/packages/RPMS
In RedHat, I think in will be in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS.
Other RedHat based distros such as Fedora and CentOS will be something similar.
I have no idea about Mandriva or other rpm distros except to say that the compiled rpm will be somewhere in /usr/src.

You will find out the file name when you find it in /usr/src/..../RPMS.

Unless you specifically want a tailored kernel, you needn't build. Just install the binary rpms from the Fedora repository.

Cheers, Lou

if you rebuild the kernel it will be the version you build . dua.

there is nothing called "fendora linux-2.6.8.1 "

and you said it was fedora 12 ?? odd because the current kernel in fedora 12 is 2.6.33

version 2.6.8 is from 2004 6 years ago ?????? "ChangeLog-2.6.8 14-Aug-2004 06:02 "

SO AGAIN WHAT disrto ARE YOU USING because it is NOT FEDORA 12 !

I'm an old-timer but naive and becoming suspicious of this post. Is fendora a repeated and honest misspell? How could someone with your obvious limited experience with programming expect to build a kernel?

Explain please.
