I'm currently using RH 7.1 running Linux 2.4.2-2. I'm trying to upgrade to
2.4.12. I'm not upgrading just by applying patches.
I'm having problems with my ethernet card. Its Realtec and the old kernel
uses 8139too.o module. I do make the proper selections but eth0 fails to
come up and also vfat not supported by kernel.
I just follow the usual steps make menuconfig, make dep make clean, make
bzImage, make install, make modules, make modules_install.
I've not done any kernel compilation before.....so may not be knowing some
I also want to know what exactly should be selected as part of kernel and
what as modules.
Awaiting your reply,
