Recompiling the kernel in FC3
* a newbie lies bleeding on the carpet, struggles up and tries to get help.
I have the driver I need to get my <darn stupid linux-objecting> motherboard functioning. An ALi 1689 chipset driver, that will hopefully let my graphics and ethernet cards be recognised, and transform a clunky system into a sanctuary away from the world of sense (?).
README file says the following:
"To install the driver, you should reconfigure and recompile your linux kernel as follows..."
and it has lost me. Reconfigure I assume means that I have to change the text in the files. Recompile I think I get that. The particular files referred to are not there. That of course is because Fedora Core 3 doesn't come with teh kernel, you have to download and deal with it yourself (shouldn't this be easier anyway?)
Please tell me how in newbie english?
