kernel configuration question

Post by Travis Grigg » Sat, 01 Feb 2003 03:51:43

I'm trying to setup Software RAID-1. The TLDP pages have been very
helpful. One of the comments I came across in the document is the following:

"1. You need autodetection support in the kernel. Check this"

Just how do I check that. I'm building 2.4.19 kernels. Just what
menuconfig option is that found under? Or has it become standard in
these kernels since that time?

1. Yet another Kernel configuration question re: Redhat 5.1 . . .

I finally was able to make my way through what seemed to be a successfull
Unpacking, Compiling, and install.  However, when my system boots, it still
displays version 2.0.27 (Redhat 4.1) instead of what should be there,
2.0.34.   I thought maybe the rc.local file was wrong but of course it's
using uname -r to get the release version.  So 'aparently', all my efforts
to install the correct kernel have been for naught.  I would apreciate if
someone could take a look at the steps I've made and tell me if they can see
anything glaringly wrong.

1.    Obtained the new kernel from sunsite/unc   (linux-2.0.34.tar.gz)
2.    mv linux-2.0.34.tar.gz /usr/src
3.    mv /usr/src/linux /usr/src/linux.old
4.    tar zxvpf linux-2.0.34.tar.gz
5.    cd /usr/src/linux
6.    make mrproper
7.    make menuconfig
8.    make dep ; make clean
9.    make zImage
10.  mv /boot/vmlinuz /boot/vmlinuz.old
11.  cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage /boot/vmlinuz
12.  make modules
13.  /etc/lilo.conf
14.  /sbin/lilo

Any suggestions would be greatly apreciated.
