Rebuilding Kernal


Do I need to reconfig the make? All I did is to change the file descriptors in some of header files. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What were you trying to achieve?
Why would you want to modify headers to get
a kernel that matches your needs? :) Do you
have some device that's not supported in the
standard kernels?

But to answer the question: modifying headers
won't give you a new kernel. You do have to
rebuild it.


Cheers,
Tink

I have software installed in my LUNIX machine that requires to open more then 1000 files simultaneously, that is why I increase the file descriptors in those header files. And now to get these changes affected, I have to rebuild kernel. I never rebuild a kernel and so I am looking for baby steps. I will be great full for any help. Thanks

These steps are explained all the time here on this site, there is great documentation on www.tldp.org in the Kernel howto and so on.. I'd suggest trying a small search to find answers then ask if you run into anything specific. We really shouldn't have to keep repeating ourselves or should we?? Thanks.
