I'm running the standard 13.37 i686 220.127.116.11-smp kernel. If I simply replace CONFIG_PREEMPT_VOLUNTARY=y with CONFIG_PREEMPT_NONE=y, do I need to do a "make modules" and them a "make modules_install" ? Or just a "make" and "make install" ?
I just did the following:
cp /boot/config .config
replace CONFIG_PREEMTP_VOLUNTARY=y with CONFIG_PREEMPT_NONE=y
Then moved over the config and bzimage to the /boot and setup lilo accordingly.
P.S. You guys have any other good kernel tweaks when rebuilding a kernel for a server. Basically just trying to make it energy efficient. Hardware is fairly new, bought last year, but running 1.8 single core Celeron.
