Need to do Fedora core upgrade

Hi,
I am doing my Project on FC3 machines running 2.6.9-1.667smp and it is very urgent that I do the upgrade or patch to 2.6.10 version. I am short of time and when i tried to upgrade i.e patch the kernel it was a complete failure so plz help me.

when I typed uname -r on my desktop it showed that I am running 2.6.9-1.667smp and to upgrade the kernel i looked in google and found the patch "patch-2.6.10.bz2" and I guess I got the right patch for doing the upgrade and when I copy this in /usr/src after reading in google I found that I need to do

bzcat /usr/src/patch-2.6.10.bz2 | patch -p1 -f and also tried
bzcat /usr/src/patch-2.6.10.bz2 | patch -p0 -f and

bzcat /usr/src/patch-2.6.10.bz2 | patch -p1
bzcat /usr/src/patch-2.6.10.bz2 | patch -p0

but nothing worked out and its saying file to patch: and nothing comes out after that.

Please do help me the procedure and patch file which I need to use to upgrade.

Thank u in advance

I'm not sure if it's possible, but if you wanna install Core 5 this would kill 2 birds with one stone; Get all the new apps, features and security updates, not to mention the speed increase brough about in FC5, and get the brand-new 2.6.16 kernels!

Need only 2.6.10

Thanks a lot for the reply.

I need to specifically install kernel 2.6.10 so I am looking for RPM for that particular file and i do not know where to get that since no where I am able to get it. My application which i m going to install works only on 2.6.10 kernel (iscsi applicaiton). so please let me know how i do that and also how do i know if my system is i386 or i 586. Plz keep in touch so that I can clear all my doubts. I have to finish the project with in a fortnite and I need all possible help that you can do. The system is not connected to internet to do yum updates.

For more understanding about reason to download 2.6.10:

Drivers and daemon for using iSCSI (SCSI over IP) on Linux. For Linux kernels 2.6.11 and above, use open-iscsi.org. For the 2.6.9 and 2.4 kernels, use the RHEL4 and RHEL3 CDs respectively. The 4.0.2 version here will work on the 2.6.10 kernel only.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/linux-iscsi/


So please let me know how to download and upgrade the kernel and make my life easier.

You'll have to build it yourself, but the sources are here: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...-2.6.10.tar.gz
Please try to keep your posts to a single thread - posting the same questions four times won't get you any more help than just posting once.

Try this site, the version numbers are different, but the basic procedure is the same:

question from link given to me

After trying to follow process given in link :

http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-kernel-fc3.html

I have some doubts where I do not know wat I am supposed to do like:

should i do patch or not? I just want to run 2.6.10 kernel image

Copy the previous Fedora .config file from the fedora kernel.src.rpm, this will be your starting point for customizing the kernel and how do i do that? When i look into /usr/src i could not find any config files for kernel to be copied and i m running fedora so what is this?

without the above 2 steps do i need to proceed or it will be a complete failure.

google is your friend. With a little bit of effort (ie, less than one minute of searching) I found a solution. There's a difference between asking for help with something you can't get past and not trying at all.

And now, I'll step off my soapbox and provide what I found: http://linux.derkeiler.com/Mailing-L...5-04/1736.html

Hi thanks a lot for your continued help. By the way i tried a lot to search in google with error message copied to google search but i could not find any and as last resort and since u guys are more expert in giving solutions in your field and out of your field i had some hope.
