Re: kernel patching and compiling



Redhat uses a somewhat "non-standard" linux set of initialization scripts...

As a results your attempt to do this do not work, because things are not
where the initscripts expects them...

You are far better of downloading and install ALL of the 2.0.35 RPMS,
including the RPMS for
sysvinit
initscripts
kernel-2.0.35
kernel-headers
etc...

This will correctly modify your system. The only thing you'll have to do is
check the /etc/lilo.conf to be sure it was updated, and then run "lilo"
before rebooting...
