an modified kernel in the slackware cd! is there an way?!?!?!


Hello I have an Question i have already made an modified Slackware 9 CD (german).

without:

gnome - gnome apps,emacs, mozilla

included:
kernel 2.4.21
firebird and Opera 7.11 with Blackhawk-java and flash included, emovix, fam, all foomatic drivers, id3lib, k3b, kmplayer, kvirc, LinNeighborhood, mosfet Liquid, Mplayer, Mplayer Codecs (all win codecs), pkgtool2, sylpheed, transcode, vcdimager, xine, xinelibs, xine vcdx, xmms skins, gaim, rpppoe ui, wine (preconfigured OpenGL and config!!),

and uptodate packages from slackware like KDE 3.13,............................

and it is modified for german users so they have to install it and done no configuration is needed anymore, because style and everything is modified by me.

But now my problem if there is no help then i will get it out but it can go easier.

I wanna include an modified kernel into the cd, that means the bare.i kernel, kernelsources ...................

but the question is how can i make it i want the kernelpatch ck3 from Con Kolivas included and if there is an way also nvidia driver and ATI driver?!?!?!! and that things enabled and nvidia and ati as modul loadable.

If anyone can help me then please help ;-)

or better if anyone can make it and want to make it then please tell me, because kernelcompiling is not my strengh.

greatz from Austria cHarOn

Ahh and hello all in the board, I'm long here but never need an special help because i can take the search button ;-)

Sure there is... patch your kernel... zip the source, and put it in the CD (if you have enough space)... as for the included kernels on the CD, you should already have the config-ide-kernel.version files in /boot. Use them as a basis to compile your custom kernel.

There's a kernel compiling guide at the start of this forum... It's very useful and step-by-step.

Why would you want to patch drivers into the kernel? I don't even think this is possible.

The drivers (at least the nvidia ones, i don't use ati cards) does not need to be patched in the kernel. It just needs the kernel headers to be compiled.

If you have the kernel sources, then make a package to install it to /usr/src/linux-version_number eg: /usr/src/linux-2.4.21. And make a symlink called /usr/src/linux pointing to that directory.

You're done.

I don't think you can make the nvidia drivers into slackpacks as they are very system-specific. The best you can do is include it in your CD and give instructions on how to install it (the .bin file should be very easy to execute).
