Kevin, I'm using a server from a company in spain that rents dedicated
At first, the server was setup with Fedora 13. Clean, no other stuff in it.
I started the process of installing Asterisk the same way I did with another
server that we have
but with Fedora 12. This other server was already 'prepered' by someone
else. They let
me the server after using it for a while and I successfully installed
Asterisk on it with no problems at all.
yum install kernel-devel and everything else worked fine.
So, when I started to have problems on the new server with Fedora 13, I
decided to downgrade to Fedora 12.
The problem is that the company that rents me the server, don't support
Fedora 12 anymore.
They have Fedora 11 or 13. So I choose Fedora 11x64. And here I'm.
With fedora 13 I couldn't install gcc either. Some dependencies were looking
for kernel > 2.2.1 or
something like it. So I decided to downgrade to 12.( that became 11 becouse
the didn't have 12 )
Someone here told me Fedora 11 is no longer supported. Is that true ? No
more repos available ?
So far the only thing that I can not do is to install kernel-devel.
Can I install some other version of kernel-devel and compile anyway ? Can I
trick it by changing the dir name ?
Asterisk needs this headers to 'make' it so ...
Here you have the /etc/grub.conf
[root@ns310181 etc]# more grub.conf
title linux fedora11_64
kernel /boot/bzImage-188.8.131.52-xxxx-grs-ipv4-64 root=/dev/md1 ro
Looks like a "special" Fedora version ( some xxxx there ), not a free one
you can download from internet.
May be the guys that let me the other server, installed a new kernel. Can I
do that ?
Can you give me some tips ( tips, guides, urls ) on how to do it ? I see
that you are kind of an expert on linux.
Obviously I'm not. But not afraid to try new things.
u'r d man !!!

Kevin, my man, you know what you r talking about !!!
here you have the command output:
[root@ns310181 include]# rpm -qa kernel\*
or the other one ( shorter )
[root@ns310181 include]# rpm -qa | grep 2.6
Now I see the real kernel. I'm running on 184.108.40.206-167.fc11.x86_64
Ah, no, you are not. if uname says you are running on 220.127.116.11, you
have booted a 18.104.22.168 kernel. The question now becomes, where is it,
and where did it come from? If you have no kernel RPM installed, then
where did your kernel come from. I have both a kernel and a
kernel-headers package installed (in fact, I have a couple of kernels
installed) on most of my systems.
On my 1 F11 system, I have:
# rpm -q -a kernel\*
and I'm running:
# uname -r
As you can see, I also have kernel-22.214.171.124-167 installed, but I'm not
You need to look at your /etc/grub.conf file (or where it really lives
in /boot/grub/grub.conf) and see what kernels you system can boot from.
Perhaps that will shed some light on where your 126.96.36.199 kernel has come
from. You haven't installed anything from another non-RPM source have you?
BTW, the following are current F13 kernels:
rpm -q kernel
You, obviously, are running on x86_64 hardware.
I can also see that I have header installed:
*The question would be, where ?*
*So, I wonder why 'uname -r' gives me this crap:
And why 'yum install kernel-devel' doesn't work ?
I can't answer that without seeing more of your yum output (where is it
looking for kernels, etc). But, if you are running a non-rpm kernel,
building/installing other software is going to give you miles and miles
of grief. And finding/installing RPMs is going to be next to impossible
in cases like this.
Thanks for the answer.
you'r the man
