Customized Kernel for Kickstart Installation.


Hello,

I have successfully setup a kickstart environment for installing the original Fedora 13 using PXE/DHCP/TFTP. Now I want to build a customized kernel and install it using the same Kickstart setup. After building the new kernel.rpm file, what are right steps to do to replace the original kernel rpm in Kickstart RPM directory, like fixing modules dependency, creating new bzImage and intrid etc?

Thanks a lot in advance!
Andrew

Hello,

After building the customized kernel, I am looking for more specific instructions about how to reconcile the Kickstart RPM directory with the new kernel.

Thanks a lot,
