Help installing 16K stack.


Hey everyone. I'm trying to install the 16k stack into FC4 for ndiswrapper.

I've done this a few times and have failed... so I'm looking for a little help.

Here are the sources... http://www.linuxant.com/driverloader...ernel-i686.php

I'm using the file... kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.stk16.src.rpm.zip... my kernel is 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.

I have been extracting the rpm and using 'rpm -Uvh kernel-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.stk16.src.rpm' to install it. Everything goes through fine... but I don't think it is working correctly.

On another note... I am not using any bootloader. This is a dual boot box and I have a boot cd that I created via rescue mode. I know on my server when I upgrade the kernel there are multiple options in the bootloader... is this part of my problem?? How can I tell if the package has been installed correctly?

Well you need to compile the kernel source then you will need to create a new boot CD with this new kernel. Please review the kernel rebuild guide for a better understanding, but the basic steps for the Red Hat family are;

make mrproper
make menuconfig (or gconfig or xconfig)
make
make modules_install
make install


I'm pretty sure you do in fact have a bootloader, even Microsoft uses a bootloader. True it is not called that but you cannot boot Windows without one. Linux is perfectly capable of booting from the Microsoft bootloader, in fact some do use this instead of LILO or GRUB (both Linux bootloaders).

Yea... I know Windows has a boot loader... I meant I didn't install Grub during my installation. The reason is that if I have to clear the linux partition for some reason... my entire bootloader will get wiped out. I've done it in the past... so any box I dual boot I try to boot Linux from a CD or floppy.

I'll look into booting linux from the Windows bootloader and do a little more reading on compiling the kernel. I was under the impression that if I installed it from the rpm with -Uvh that everything would be done.

Not with the kernel source rpm file in fact you need to prep this before attempting to build. After installing the kernel source one needs to do;

See; 7.2.2.3. Preparing for Kernel Development starting at step 3
