I m writing device driver for Linux(rather learning how to write them)
I m referring book from http://lwn.net/Kernel/LDD2/
URL(Linux Device Drivers)
As per requirement to run examples from this book, I need to hv kernel 2.6.x
I installed RHEL-5(kernel ver 2.6.18)
Now the problem is,
1. how i can proceed with kernel tree configuration ??
What's the need to configure kernel tree as it may be configured at installation time (OR might not be)??
2. Please explain, what they exactly mean by configuring & building kernel tree?(What happens internally ..??)
