I am trying to upgrade my kernel (Red Hat 7.0) and am attempting to ght the updated 'mkinitrd' recommended in the 'CHANGES' file. I have tried http://www.redhat.com and cannot find this file. I have also tried ftp://rawhide.redhat.com/pub/rawhide'i386/RedHat/RPMS/ and was unsuccessful.
Am I doing something wrong?
How to I get this file?

Where to find mkinitrd-2.9

I went to the site suggested in the previous post, however, I think I want mkinitrd 2.9, which is not there at that site. In fact I can't find it anywhere. I am following an article that is in http://www.LinuxNewbie about building and installing the 2.4 kernel in Redhat 7. Somehow, he found 2.9 at ftp://rawhide.redhat.com/pub/rawhide/i386/RedHat/RPMS/. It may have been there at one time, but I can't find it.

2.6 is available, but it seems like I should have that version already on my RH7.0. Do I really need this file to compile the new kernel?

Hi
I had the same problem finding it, the RH rawhide FTP doesn't work at all. I went ahead and upgraded to 2.4.2 with my existing file, and all went well.
