Need assistance please

I have Suse Linux enterprise server 8.0 I just want to know where can I get the latest kernel for Suse and also just want to know if it is the same procedure with Fedora on re compiling the kernel.

Thank you very much,

I don't know anything about SuSE, but I 9imagine you can get all of your software updates via YaST. And compiling your own kernel from scratch is pretty much the same on every distro.

If it's anything like Slackware, you can get the pre-compiled kernel from ftp hosts via Suse's web site. You can get a base kernel from too. Also, btmiller is right (or at least I would have to assume) about compiling the kernel being the same between distros.

Thanks you very much, I ask this because im I have a dell 2850 dual 3.2 Gig processor with 6 Gig memory, Im using FC2 64 bit which i recompile my own kernel 2.6.10, A modulator acid told me that its better to use either RHEL or SLES so im planning to install my Suse but the kernel is only 2.4.18 thats why im asking if the procedure on re compiling the kernel on FC and Suse are the same, plus the help i can get to this community, i mean there are so many FC users compare to Suse users (i only think)

Any way I will Suse, again thank you very much,

i had try to install fedora core 3 64 bit on dell 2850 with perc4e/di but not success. it cannot find hard drive (i think because anaconda cannot load megaraid driver). do you have any solution about this?

Yup, since the server is for Cache/Proxy what I did is disable the perc4e/di controller and just used the standard built in scsi controller. I used software raid for the 1st 2 scsi drive (raid1) and the other hard disk are stand alone. By the way I was not able to use FC3 64 on this server instead I used FC2 64 bit, then just recompile the kernel for version 2.6.10.

I hope it helps
