Kernel guide     Last updated: April 12th 2005

This guide provides documentation on kernel configuration and usage of kernel flavors

Kernel re-configuration

You can perform a kernel re-configuration or revoke a backed up kernel using ol-ki program. It is recommended to build your required modules as builtins [*] instead of [M], inorder to prevent addional setup.

After configuring and re-installing your kernel, the ol-ki program will list the packages in your system that requires a reinstall. (those packages that are dependent on kernel eg. modules need to be rebuild).

Only if these packages are reinstalled, they will function. Note: If you are using Nvidia commercial driver, then immediatly switch to native X driver until you reboot

  • ol-ki -config : For kernel reconfiguration

Kernel Flavors

A Kernel flavor is a specially configured kernel with patches and custom configuration such as mm-set, openmosix etc..

ol-ki program offers a set of pre-configured kernels with each kernel release. Using command: ol-ki -install, you can view the list of available flavors and choose your flavor to install.

Then the ol-ki program will automatically perform the required operations like patching and downloading the required configuration file to re-install the kernel with that particular flavor configured.

  • ol-ki -install : For installing kernel flavors
Note: With each kernel install or reinstall, all kernel dependent packages notified to you should be rebuilt for proper functioning, there is no alternative for this.
