MDK 10.1 kernel from MDK 10.2 devel


Does someone has already installed on a MDK10.1 the mandrake 10.2 prebuild kernel 2.6.10 or 2.6.11 from mdk10.2 cooker or devel rpms?
(ex: kernel-2.6.11.6mdk-1-1mdk.i586.rpm from ftp.belnet.be/packages/mandrakelinux/devel/10.2/i586/media/main/)

Is it compatible, intersting, and is there a special procedure to do that?

Thanks

I think that using the precompiled 10.2 rpms on a 10.1 box could cause some problems because they are compiled with a different version of gcc.
When I need to upgrade the kernel, I grab the latest source rpm from the SRPMS folder and rebuild that.

For example, ftp://ftp.belnet.be/packages/mandrakelinux/devel/10.2/SRPMS/main/kernel-2.6.11.6.mdk.src.rpm

You can build it with the command (as root):
rpmbuild --rebuild kernel-2.6.11.6.mdk.src.rpm

If you don't have the rpm tools installed, you can use urpmi to get them:
urpmi rpmbuild

Once it's finished compiling, you can find the final rpms in the /usr/src/RPM/RPMS directory.
