Does this mean this MINI-HOW-TO can not be applied to RHL 7.3 kernel 2.4.18?

I realise how this "clean move" might how sound for you ). No preblem. We roumanians have a proverb saying something like that: even if you're stupid, is more important that you're recovering.... it has more fun in romanian )

That's about it!

Of course it can, but I had some trouble getting a new kernel to compile right under 7.3... not that it's not possible, in fact nearly the same steps are necesary. My suggestion is to follow this guide and see if you have success on compiling (or re-compiling for that matter) your kernel. The problems I had had to do with the newer one (2.4.20-20.7) which for some reason would complaint again and again about the cryptographic modules and some other stuff.

Basically yes, but I had never attempted to do such a thing in any version prior 7.3 All in all the steps should be fine (as long as you don't try to compile anything too new, dependencies, and stuff). So I think you should be safe in 6.2 by recompiling the latest official RH 6.2 kernel or one vanilla from the 2.2 series. Newer kernels need newer libraries like tcl/tk (the graphical enviroment in xconfig) or ncurses (again the graphics on menuconfig).

There is only one problem:
In RedHat 8.0 make xconfig don't works .
Users should rather use Kelner Configuration tool from KDE Command Center.

I find it strange that xconfig won't work on your machine... what version of tcl/tk you are using? and if you are trying to compile a 2.4 kernel. 2.6 uses QT and GTK for the interface in the deprecated xconfig (xconfig uses QT, gconfig uses GTK).

Hi,I
am having problems with my new kernel and would like to remove it. Can I do a "make uninstall" in the /usr/src/2.4.22/ directory. Will this remove all traces of the new kernel like its entry in the grub bootloader
Cheers,
Sat

I don't know what version of tcl/tk I am using. I don't even know what is tcl/tk .
What I know is that I have Red Hat Linux 8.0 installed with tools for software development some server's , kernel sources etc. And when I write to my shell:

[root@Sebo Sebo]#make xconfig
make: *** Brak regół do wykonania obiektu 'xconfig'. Stop.

...appears. I will try to translate into English:
make: *** There are no rules to make 'xconfig' object. Stop.

Sebo, try menuconfig... and see if that works Ok.


chichibabin: Unforutunately there is no way to uninstall the kernel via a uninstall script in the source tree, BUT you can do so by deletin your /lib/modules/<kernelversion>, /boot/<kernel files> and editting grub.conf.

Thanks targos,
That's what I did, several times. I think I've got a working 2.4.22 kernel now.
Cheers

I forgot the make install command

I still have a question though, My friend bought a brand new pc (2 moths old now) with all the devices onboard and asked me to install Linux on it. I installed RH9, the installation was fine but as you might have already guessed, none of the devices were recongnized by the kernel. The output of lspci tells me that all devices are unknown (something to do with a new mobo chipset i guess).

My question is: If i recompile 2.4.22, and take the acutal config-2.4.20-8 file located in /boot as the input file for make xconfig, will the kernel recognized the devices? or do ill have to select the drivers manually in the xconfig menu?

Since im quite a with the kernel compile process, i dont want to play on the /boot partition too much. by reaming some files etc...


Thank you from Montreal!!!
