how to update a kernel with tar ball package
HAPPY NEW YEAR
i'm using redhat...
i'm using kernel-2.6.18-8 now i want to update my kernel with 2.6.32-2 version i install it from net, then un bzip and extract but how to install it ..
on more question what is a meaning of stable version...
and how to patch a kernel
plz help me
From the questions that you're asking I would *VERY* strongly suggest you do NOT do this, and instead just install the newer official kernel updates from redhat in RPM format. If you do not have an RHN subscription then you can just use the centos RPM's instead via their yum repositories.
why disto make these tar ball
thanx for support
if this is not extandable or we not use this as a patch so why open source realese its tar ball kernel packages....
i more question
if i using 2.6.18-8 now i wish update only with 2.6.18-53 so is that possible to patch a kernel this in running mode..
plz confirm this also
RHEL/CentOS's strongest side is stability. That is achieved with known, not changing kernel, so bug's are prevented of making problems.
If you update your RHEL to 5.4, you will be able to run 2.6.18-164.9.1.el5 that is much closer to latest kernel (2.6.3x-x) then to original 2.6.18 kernel.
To have proper RHEL/CentOS you MUST NOT change packages, especially kernel and glibc, other then from RHEL/CentOS repositories.
