I have a redhat 9 with kernels 2.4.20 and 2.6.0
If i copy the config-2.4.20-8 file to /usr/src/linux2.4/.config
and run a
Will this overwrite my /lib/modules/2.4.20-8 directory all over again, since it already exists. is it ok if I perform the above steps again, will it overwrite any previous 2.4 settings?
im not sure why u want to run make config when u jsut copied a (supposedly) good config file across? i guess it doesn thurt to double check.
this will overwrite any modules that already exist but i dont htink it will delete any that do not get replaced (eg. 3rd party graphics drivers taht did NOT come with the kernel)
also unless u plan on replacing ur kernel (not jsu thte modules) u don tneed to do make bzImage
No it should create a directory for the modules for each kernel eg.
