Part IV: Red Hat Development and Product... > Configuring and Building Kernels

Chapter 27. Configuring and Building Kernels

In This Chapter

The scope of this chapter is forward-looking. Since prebuilt images for the current Red Hat kernels are readily available, and because those ready-made kernels require little more than an rpm -Uvh command, your main use of this chapter may be to build the "canonical" Linux kernel from the sources maintained by Linus Torvalds. With Linux in a transition to new release, this chapter will focus on the canonical 2.4 kernel. Because Linux 2.4 is almost twice the size and has four times the configuration options of Linux 2.2, and because your Red Hat kernel will contain some of these features as vendor patches, some descriptions listed here may be slightly different. This chapter can still guide you through a 2.2 install, but it will tend to tease you with features you can only get through the latest sources.
