I'm using Slackware 10.0 (kernel 2.4.26) and I want to use a platform which is designed for kernel 2.4.20.
It is previous kernel version. Shall I download the appropriate kernel and recompile it? What should I do?
I thought that I couldn't compile a previous kernel version (2.4.20) while having 2.4.26. Doesn't any newer version have all the features of the oldest versions? Which is the reason to go "back" to previous versions?
You can compile and install 2.4.20 and then run that kernel. It doesn't matter what kernel you are currently running. I am not going to instruct you on how to do that as there is a sticky thread that contains all the needed info.
