RE: newbie help
Try tar zxvf kernel-source 2.2.12.tar.gz (which u have mentioned is already
in /usr/src). tar will "un-tar" and
"gunzip" the kernel sources into the directory
kernel-source-<kernel_version> (or something like that). cd
into the said directory and do a make config ( ro make menuconfig or make
xconfig if you want meu-driven and
X versions of the config, respectively), make modules, make modules-install,
make bzImage. cp the resulting
bzImage in /usr/src/arch/i386/boot (for i386 architecture) into /boot and
remember to modify your lilo.conf to i
nclude your new kernel and run lilo at the command prompt. Also, I suggest
you mv your current
/lib/modules/<kernel_version> to /lib/modules/<kernel_version>.original
...just in case you want to use
the original modules back...
Hope that helps....cheers.
