Question installing 2.2.10 kernel on Redhat 8.0 (kernel 2.4.18-20)


Hi,

I am running a redhat 8.0 (kernel 2.4.18-20) ..... i want to also install a 2.2.10 kernel on the same Linux for some research work on the older kernel.... i followed the steps in the "linux kernel how to" but was unable to get anything from the command "make bzImage" there were a lot of errors and deprecation issues ..... the gcc which i have is the one that came along with the Redhat 8.0 .... can someone help me out on the kernel installation .... any tips .... or particular steps to follow ...... thanx !

heres my tutorial
i think this tutorial is as basic as it gets....i made it very very basic actually with an explanation of every command, and since people posted with comments and suggestions there is a couple other things added throughout the thread....i can't think of a way to make this any easier for you, so enjoy and good luck !

could you by chance tell what kinda error your getting, and are you sure your not missing a step before getting to the point of make bzImage.

if you are using bk, maybe not all files were checked out? Try


bk -r get


and if the error still does not go away,


make mrproper


and then


make {,x,menu}config


make dep does nothing in 2.5 and make bzImage is standard target, so you
can abbreviate you command line to


make && make modules && sudo make modules_install
