Total Newbie Kernel Question
Using Redhat 8.0 I am trying to install a couple of extras that require kernel upgrades.
Specifically I want to mount an NTFS partition and a PPTP client.
To get the PPTP client I need some new kernel with a different version that ends in mppe0 (to install mppe support - whatever that is - before installing pptp).
To get NTFS I also need a new kernel.
So my question: How do these things mix?
If I install the kernel with mppe support will the kernel for NTFS overwrite it?
Assuming I install these as binary RPMs, am I completely replacing my kernel each time?
If so how do I get them both to work.
Do I need to install them as source and build them?
How do I go about that?
For that do I need to load the source rpm for my current kernel (I chose no source when installing as workstation)
all advice and pointers welcome.
