RE: Adding hardware support

It is not a part of the kernel in CentOS 5.6. 


Okay, (I think) one way to do it is manually to add the jme.ko file from kmod-jme to the modules.cgz file inside the initrd file that anaconda builds (and sort out the pci.ids and other data files).  Is there a way to get the buildinstall script to do that automatically?  Would any modifications to upd-instroot help?


I’m testing release builds at the moment, so my build system is producing rather a lot of .iso images.  Every time I get an installer .iso file, I don’t want to manually have to take it apart again, open the initrd, open the modules.cgz, add the driver, rebuild modules.cgz, rebuild initrd and rebuild the .iso.

If this is kernel module, than is it should be part of kernel?
