LINUX KERNEL 2.6.3 AND OTHER STORIES
Well I just built the Linux kernel 2.6.3 and installed it - first time it booted it gave some errors but no problems - it did not have vfat support enabled. However the speed is much better and mouse motion is fluid.
So again I built it - this next time it gave a kernel panic while booting up - something about not being able to read the file format - I had missed out mkinitrd (or make install) left it at make modules_install ...
The .config file need to be generated and its tedious through make menuconfig - you may miss out many options. Instead this is good idea :
cp /boot/config-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl .config (for FEDORA CORE 1 that I am using)
The 1st build is still working but its not reading the CD-ROM drive (block device), floppy drive and no vfat reading support as I mentioned.
