As Nico Kedel-Garcia suggested instead of the 'make modules_install'
and 'make install' commands you can use the 'make rpm' command.
Then use "rpm -i" on the resulting kernel RPM to install it *as well
as* your existing kernel, instead of to replace it. Trust me on
this part, you don't want to do an "rpm -U" or "rpm -F" and replace
the existing kernel until you've had a chance to test it.
Okay, thanks Nico, I'll make sure I don't replace the working kernel
until after testing the new one. But I wonder whether the new info
in my earlier response to you alters any procedires.
Right now, can you use the "make oldconfig" commands, or "cp
/boot/config-[yourkernel] .config; make oldconfig" to get the kernel source
tree straightened out?
