    Is it possible to upgrade to the 2.6 kernel Fedora core 1?


    Would I basically have Fedora core 2 then? What would be the easiest way to upgrade the kernel?

    If you really don't want to spend so much time to configure, compile, and learn, just use apt. You can easily install a new kernel in no harm situation. Check out this apt website: http://www.freshrpms.net

    Great site.

    i would suggest you to do it manually..just download the newest stable kernel grom http://kernel.org and then install it using the guides you'll find there or in the net.

    but to answer the question about if you upgrade the kernel will you have core 2. the answer is no. cause there is patches and more other stuff to make the rest of the system better that the fedora team did. they dont create the kernel all they do is create the os wrapper per say so you would still be running core 1 but with a new kernel

    big_k105 is right ....with installing the new kernel does not mean that you change all the version to be similar to 2.kde should be the old one and the libraries too...for upgrading your system you should install fedora core 2 .and you won't have to compile the kernel manually(more dangerous).
