Recompiling Linux Kernel
Posted on 2004-04-20
My server is RedHat Linux 9.0. My hosting provider installed the kernel from source.
On Nov 2003, one of their support recompiled the kernel.
This directory is exists :
Now I must recompile the kernel by my self.
(1) Is it ok to recompile the kernel remotely ? So I will ssh to this server and recompile the kernel.
(2) I just want to change ONE of the compile option, from CONFIG_IP_MULTICAST=y to CONFIG_IP_MULTICAST=n, and the rest should be the same with current kernel. Can anyone teach me how to do this ?
I have never recompiled a kernel before. But I do understand most basic linux commands/tasks.
Please help me.
