Kernel Upgrade to 2.6.13.4 in SuSE 10


Anyone done it? I hear good things in other distros, have not tried it myself, but think I would like to. It seems to fix hotplug issues, and speed, and possibly ATI video issues, among the many fixes from 13.1 to 2, 3, and 4.
If you have done it, is there a good step by step guide for us SuSE newbies?

Hello!

open a console and type rpm -uhv "newkernel".
Reinstall the bootloader, if you are using lilo.
Then you have to reboot your computer.

So that's it? Completely?

I just download the new kernel from kernel.org, then type that into a consoole, I think I am using LVM, not lilo, can I run a check to be sure I don't need to do that? And then I reboot... and it will install the new kernel and keep all the options I currently have and all?

Hello!

My description above was for a already compiled kernel from suse (in a rpm)
LVM has nothing to do with a bootloader like lilo or GRUB.

If you want to use the kernel from www.kernel.org, you have to extract the kernel to /usr/src/(kernel).
In this directory launch the kernelconfig by "make menuconfig" (from console) or make xconfig (from GUI).
Choose your options and then save and exit.
type "make" in console and then "make install".
Afterwards you must add the new kernel to the bootloader.




Greetings
