Greetings Brian ,

Is it possible to run make rpm and get a compiled version of the kernel?
I will fail you on that . All i can suggest is this . Get the
kernel-source-version.rpm . This is essentially the "rpm version of the
tarball" . Then run rpmbuild --rebuild and make the kernel rpm .
I have not compiled a kernel in awhile. I seem to recall doing this on
the vanilla kernel source. After you compile the rpm, you could remove
it with the usual rpm -e <kernel-custom> command.
You could try make rpm.
No rule to make target rpm . Do you by any chance mean ,
rpmbuild ? rpmbuild will fail because the top level directory doesn't
have the spec file needed to do the job .
Anyway what do i have to loose if i just go ahead without using
an rpm and compile the kernel the old fashioned way . I don't understand
the problem to the stability of the system if the rpmdatabase isn't
aware of the kernel being running.
