Question Kernel compiling questions

Well, I'm needing to recomile my kernel, I read the kernel HOWTO on linuxdocs off course, perhaps I missed something

Well heres my problem, when I do make bzImage there are some warnings, not many though. warnings about implicit declarations and so. So I'm thinking if there are any thing that should be installed, I have libc installed, kernel headers, source, and on I still might be missing something? The kernel does compile though.

Another problem was when I installed the new kernel and ran it, lot's of problems occured, so I rebooted with the old kernel but then lot's of driver didn't work anymore, anything I could do to prevent that?

Dunno if you could help me, thx anyway

Welcome to the board!

Why would you want to read general docs when there are specific ones for you distro?

I run ASP-Linux. The concept should be the same.

identify your cpu
ensure your setup is compatible with the new kernel
download 3-5 files, depending on your requirements, usually 3, *headers*, *source* & kernel*
log in as root & open terminal
rpm -K --nogpg *rpm (check md5sum)
rpm -Uvh *headers* *source*
ignore header errors
rpm -ivh kernel* *ibc* *pcmcia*
ls /boot -l
vi /etc/lilo.conf (reflect the new kernel)
shutdown -r

Do Not copy & paste. It will NOT work. At least, do ls and copy the names.
