Re: [vox-tech] How to recompile kernel


this is like asking "How do I fix the engine on a 747?" :)

first off, you'll need to download the source from kernel.org,
or install a redhat source package.

I suggest you read the kernel howto:


and perhaps also the ipchains howto:


As for installing ipchains, there should be an RPM of it available on your
install cd or from a redhat mirror.

$ rpm -i ipchains-version.rpm

should do it.
