I made sure I had a working boot disk so the system will come back on
i renamed the linux directory to redhat_linux
and also the other directory that redhat creates.
I applied the patch
after uncrunching the "pure" kernel
I deleted the defkeymap.c file from the
ake dep >tmp 2>&1 &
Cant remember if the above line is correct or not but
it is in the HOWTO
cd /usr/src/linux make bzImage >tmp 2>&1 &
I edited the /etc/lilo.conf file to accommodate the new kernel.
The lilo command is covered in the make install command
Make sure that the /lib/modules directory contains a directory for the new
mv bzImage /boot/
If your startup directory is different, the
lilo.conf must reflect the proper directory or the system will not boot.
Now you can shutdown the system and hope that it talks to you.
Make sure not to touch any keys until after the synthesizer has reset and
said a couple words.
If you press the enter key on the numberpad and the synthesizer stops, the
review keys are working correctly.Barry
