Linux 2.6: Compiling and Installing

Post date: April 15, 2005, 22:04 Category: System Views: 2770 Comments
Tutorial quote: We'll look at the process of compiling and installing a new kernel safely, without overwriting the existing kernel.

You can install as many kernels as you like on a Linux system, and select the one you want to run at boot time. This makes it easy to test different kernels, and different kernel configurations, with particular sets of hardware or applications. The wise network admin always tests new kernels before running them on production machines.

Compiling Your Own Kernel

Post date: May 1, 2005, 17:05 Category: System Views: 2355 Comments
Tutorial quote: Once I decided to take the plunge and go for it, I realised it's not too hard at all. As long as you have a bootable floppy or CD to boot from if your new kernel doesn't work, you'll be OK.

For this simple guide, I'll assume that you use LILO as your boot manager.

Keep Your Processes Running Despite A Dropped Connection

Post date: February 17, 2009, 08:02 Category: Software Views: 2689 Comments
Tutorial quote: I guess you all know this: you are connected to your server with SSH and in the middle of compiling some software (e.g. a new kernel) or doing some other task which takes lots of time, and suddenly your connection drops for some reason, and you lose your labor. This can be very annoying, but fortunately there is a small utility called screen which lets you reattach to a previous session so that you can finish your task.
