I'm very new to using linux distributions. I couldn't find an understandable guide round here hence a new thread. I'm trying to manually install a new kernel for fedora. it is version linux-2.6.30. the commands I have used before are:
tar xvf linuz-2.6.30.tar.gz
I used a config file from another distribution I've been working with, but that was the wrong thing to do. So I need to make a config file i think, though things are different from what I have done before.
If someone can explain this step by step from after the extracting the new kernel point I would be grateful. I also want to edit the GRUB boot loader so that I can select the new kernel and the old one. I have breifly managed this before but had a lot of errors, so starting from square one again.
