Sometime Today, Mayur Joshi assembled some asciibets to say:
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.
Download the entire source, but remember to apply the parport patch for
2.4.12. I don't know if it is already applied.
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.
In network devices, enable Ethernet 10/100, under ethernet, enable
RTL8139 as a module.
I just follow the usual steps make menuconfig, make
dep make clean, make
bzImage, make install, make modules, make modules_install.
copy your kernel to /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.12, edit lilo.conf, copy
System.map to /boot/System.map-2.4.12, run depmod -ae 2.4.12 (ignore
errors), run lilo, reboot.
I also want to know what exactly should be selected as
part of kernel and
what as modules.
ide driver, ext2fs driver, elf driver, unix domain sockets driver should
be part of kernel. Everything else as a module.
