Re: Compiling FC3 kernel.



Lai:
Thanks for your reply. As to the patches, I actually did try to apply the "final" .bz2 compressed patch, but all of the differences has already been applied. As I understand it, you are only supposed to apply patches with version numbers higher than the version of the source.


Anyway, where is the SPEC file located? and where can I find information on how to use rpmbuild?

Thanks.

There were a bunch of patch files included in the SRPM, but they were all numbered up to 2.6.9 so i did not apply them. Besides, how does one know in which order to apply the patches?

Though you don't absolutely have to apply the patches... you probably might want to because that would produce a kernel like what you already have. Those patches are indeed meant to be used.


You can look into the SPEC file to figure out the patch order. Alternatively, just use rpmbuild to construct the binary RPM for you! After installing the binary RPM, make the config changes in the config files (they're all in the SOURCES directory.
