Trying to run Fedora Core 3 with a 2.4.xx kernel
Posted on 2005-02-28
I have a project at work that is trying to run Fedora Core 3. However there is a catch to this because I need this machine to run the a 2.4.xx kernel. I have tried installing the source and compiling the kernel in FC3 and when I try to boot into it I get a kernel panic. I have tried upgrading it from RedHat 9 to FC3 but this upgrades my kernel as well with no option to run the old kernel as with previous upgrades did. I have also tried updating the FC1 installation but have not been able to get that to work as well.
If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. I have ghost images of RedHat 9, Fedora Core 1 -3 so trying something that will blow everything away and leave the machine dead is not a problem just a simple restore of the image and I am back in business.
If this is possible please give me some help. I am not an expert on linux. I have recompiled kernels and all that good stuff but the more details you can give on your suggestion the better for me.
Thanks for the help in advance.
