Re: kernel compile step 1
Well I believe that Kernel-package is one of the
packages that you need to install a kernel source the
Debian way. If you are attempting to upgrade your
kernel to 2.4.9, I think that is what I have read on
this thread, then do a apt-cache search kernel. This
will provide you all of the kernel's that are
available. If you want to install the 2.4.9-586
kernel then do a apt-get install
kernel-image-2.4.9-586 and that will install it to
your system. When you answer the questions at the
bottom of the install and add
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.9-586 to your lilo.conf in the
approperate place and the type lilo, you should be
able to reboot and you will have the new kernel
running, provided nothing went wrong. To check what
kernel that you are running you can do a "rename -r".
If as they say that you want to build (roll) your
own kernel, then you need to do a apt-get install
kernel-source-2.4.9. That will place
kernel-source-2.4.9.etc into your /usr/src folder.
Then you go from there.
