Where can i find the rpm for kernel 2.6.0-test11 ?


Hi...

I was googling since couple of days but unable to find the rpm file for kernel 2.6.0-test11. Does anyone know a site from where I can download the most recent kernel rpm?

Thanx,

amit

Build it from source. It's not very hard. Read the docs and get started.

I would recommend using www.google.com/linux to search for linux related stuff. You also need to use more general terms when searching if you cant find what you are looking for. ie kernel rpm 2.6.0 instead of kernel rpm 2.6.0-test11. If you plug in the first one, the very first item on the page will lead you to the above address.

Hmmm. A quick Googling turned up this post, which links to Arjan van de Ven's unofficial kernel RPMs.

Make sure you read some on upgrading to the 2.6 series before you do it. You will probably need to upgrade your modutils packages so you can handle the new modules (this is critical).

You will probably also need to upgrade your RPM package because there is a problem with certain RPM versions and the new kernel.

There was a page listing all the problems with the new kernel but at the moment the server is down but the link is:

It will hopefully be up again soon.
