Thread: Got latest Kernel/module RPMs, now what?

    Got latest Kernel/module RPMs, now what?

    RedHat 7.2

    Downloaded latest and greatest group of RPMs from RedHat's ftp site (440 MB). From /usr/src, I execute

    # rpm -i *.rpm

    creates a few directories, but nothing like the "linux-2.X.X-xx". No makefiles, only readme's about the changes between versions. So whats next? How would I start the make xconfig; make dep; make clean; make bzImage. ..etc

    I understand some intermediate stuf about building software projects, so do I have to move these files to appropiate locations manually? >

    Appears that some of these are patches, others just replacement C & H files. Would a mother-of-all makefile do the trick?

    up2date works ok, but very slow (my connection at home is 28.8). I can download from work (T1) source files to Zipdrive and carry home. Besides I seem to be reading some buggyness with up2date, I would like to become proficient with the upgrade process

    Thanks folks

    hello,
    welcome to LJR - your question will come in a little while.

    Okay - check out the RPM cheat sheet in the Plain English Tutorial under installation. This will do for most things, you may also need to add a -F flag for some things - like the kernel.

    ender is quite good with RedHat and I am posting in a rush right now...
