upgrading kernal to 2.6 for RH9?


is it possible to upgrade the curretn 2.4.xxx kernal that i have with RH9 to the most current vs of the kernal that is out pulic.

no i have not looked to deeply into this, but just enough to ask if there is a way to do it in RH without a rpm? i know how to do it with the .rpm can i still do it straight from source, or what ever format is available in RH9?

thank you.

yep, totally possible. just make sure you don't remove the old one before knowing the new one works fine. plenty of rpm's here.... http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/2.6/RPMS.kernel/ but if you do want to use soure, then it's jsut the same as any other distro, so grab source from kernel.org and make sure you have module-init-tools installed.

and that's kernel with a E of course... not kernal.

*grins* at helping me with my spelling. as always something to be desired...

ok great thanks. i was not sure i could continue to upgrade the kernEl after a distro had ended its support life from the creating organization.

still a mega newbie when it comes to things like this.

coming from da windoz world, that is just so nice to know i can continue with what is perceived as an out dated OS, and still have support for it.
