How to Compile the Linux Kernel

Postby kostyanj » Sat Apr 05, 2003 3:53 pm

RedHat is not Linux, it is a distribution based on the Linux kernel. The Linux kernel is a complex program which provides the underlying services to the rest of a Linux distribution. But it is easy to add new features or improvments to it as, unlike commercial operating systems like Windows 95 or MacOS, the source code is freely available. It is common practice with a Linux based operating system to recompile the kernel from source and much effort has been put in to make this a realitively user-friendly experience.

i want to use the internet, however my modem aint supported....

i now i've gott download the files (which i've found and download) but the INSTALLATION FILE aint clear and is quite confusing.

since i've gotta complie stuff and move stuff to other directorys.......but i have no idea how.....

it would be great if someone could download the files off the net and extract, compile etc then send them in an e-mail to me (or something like that).

My Modem is the "Thomson Speedtouch 330" modem......

serach speedtouch 330 on google for the fiels etc.........but any help on it would be grateful since i'm new to linux.
