Kernel compiling on SUSE 9
I would like to compile my first kernel (2.4.23) on a SUSE 9.0. My question: I have combed the net, read a bunch of articles on compiling, and I am confused about how to make sure I can boot either the new kernel or the present one.
Do I need to rename the present kernel? How? I went into /boot/vmlinuz, and there was an "EXTRAVERSION," but it was not named as the kernel compile guide I read on this forum. Is it safe to change that?
Thanks for your time and patience.
