    Wanted: Recompile Kernel How-to


    I've got Fedora 5 working mint (thanks in large part to this awesome website: ttp://home.gagme.com/greg/linux/fc5-tips.php ... the guy deserves a metal). Anyhoo, I want to reconfigure the kernel to squeeze out that last bit of performance. Problem is I've failed recompiling the kernel the last few times (w/ other versions of Fedora/Red hat) and I'm really nervous about screwing it up again. I'm looking for a really well written kernel how-to that's specifically for Fedora Core 5 (if that's possible). Anyone?

    I may not be ideal, but here is one (unofficial), for Fedora Core 4 :
    http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-kernel-fc4.html

    Or this one from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Manual :
    http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/e...om-kernel.html

    As of RHEL 4, the instructions for building a custom kernel are no longer present in the manual :
