Install src.rpm of new kernel to non-boot disk - best approach
We're running CentOS4.4 and have upgraded to a new server and after cloning the boot disk to a larger disk in the new machine realise that the kernel version on the boot disk does not support SATA drives which our new disk is.
I've compiled a more recent kernel version to a src.rpm and installed on the old disk but am not sure how to repeat the install on the SATA disk if it isn't the boot disk. If I use the -prefix or -relocate flags in rpm to point to the equivalent install locations on the SATA will this install the necessary files to the right location?
Would it be easier to just copy the directories altered by the kernel update to the new HD and if so are there any command-line flags I should use to make sure I get an exact copy?
Hope someone can help.
