societies where dating lasts - Updating fedora kernel

On other system firmwares the microcode loads fine and the system boots.

updating fedora kernel-44

We’re sorry for the inconvenience, and we’re looking at better fixes at present.

The story behind this bug is that it’s not actually a kernel bug at all. This is a package which contains both processor ‘microcode’ updates and a loader for such updates, for Intel processors.

Now we should specify a string that allows us to identify our kernel later on.

Therefore we do this: cd ~/rpmbuild/BUILD/kernel-2.6.18/linux-2.6.18.i386 vi Makefile In the line, you can put the kernel identification.

Have a look at your existing (working) kernel stanzas there and take one of them as a sample for your new stanza and replace the kernel and ramdisk, then add the stanza above all other stanzas.

vi /boot/grub/For example, my # generated by anaconda # # Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file # NOTICE: You have a /boot partition.

I think it's good to append the kernel version to that string, so something like this is ok: EXTRAVERSION = -custom- Now we run make menuconfig which brings up the kernel configuration menu.

Go to ), and install the rpm package: cd ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/i386 rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.18custom2.6.18.2-1.i386(You can now even transfer the rpm package to other Fedora systems and install them there exactly the same way, which means you don't have to compile the kernel there again.) Next we create a ramdisk for our new kernel, because otherwise the system will most likely not boot our new kernel: mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.18-custom- Then edit .

The problem appears like this: you install a kernel update, and the new kernel fails to boot, failing You may also find that a system firmware update is available from your system manufacturer, and updating the system firmware makes the bug go away.

So do please check with your manufacturer’s site and try updating your system firmware if there’s an update available.

The latest Fedora Core 6 kernel is , so we download and install it now: cd /usr/src wget rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6rpm If you see these warnings: warning: user brewbuilder does not exist - using root warning: group brewbuilder does not exist - using root you can ignore them.
