compiling a 2.4 kernel
I know this is old hat, but due to a bug in the 2.6 kernel and the
megaraid driver I can boot a 2.6 kernel....2.4 works fine, but I have to
add NIC modules for me Asus board, Realtek 8110 and a Marvel sk98lin.
The std one (sk89lin) in debian 2.4.27-4 does not work and there isnt
one I can find for the 8110.
Anyway, I think I have downloaded all the things I need to compile a
debianised kernel the kernel packager way.
I have applied the modules/patch for the asus motherboard's on-board
NIC, but what I cant find so far is how to get a 2.4.27 kernel source to
2.4.27-4....ie there would seem to be a need to apply some debianised
kernel patches applied to the 2.4 deb source package I downloaded? or is
it already patched?
I am having difficulty finding how to do this...I ran this command,
debian:/usr/src# cd linux
Nothing to do, exiting.
and as you can see it seems to say its Ok, so have im missed something?
how to check the 2.4.27 has indeed been upgraded to 2.4.27-4? before I
The second Q is, anybody got an idea how to remove the std megaraid_mbox
driver from 2.6 and install a 3rd party one (where from?) that works? I
think this raid card is/was a Dell one, but I got it second hand at an
auction, so Im not sure....
