    hi
    i've installed a minimalist distribution of linux on a pc:

    Pentium s 133
    32mb ram
    171 mb hd

    i used "tidy" distribution and the sistem work fine but now i must recompile
    the kernel.

    the distribution is based on kernel 2.2

    this are my questions:

    1) how can i compile the kernel with another pc and replace later the
    existing one?

    2) how can i install other software (like linux kernel source) on this
    distribution?

    This is best printed for your reference while you actually do this.
    Although on a P133, you'll have plenty of time to browse the internet
    while it compiles.



    Try:

    [url]www.linuxdoc.org[/url]

    You can ftp the kernel sources from ftp.kernel.org. You can get it from
    the ftp site of the Linux distribution you're using, or get it from the
    CDROMS you may have used to install Linux.

    Which way you install it depends on how you obtained the item to be
    installed.

    -Hello whatever your name is,

    Have you ever compiled a kernel for a machine? I would do it muck the
    same is a normal kernel compile, just make sure in the 'make xconfig'
    setup that you are very conservative, so it will run on the target
    machine.

    follow the directions in the readme file for the kernel you download
    at [url]www.kernel.org[/url]
    untar the file somewhere and go to it. When it comes to copy the
    bzImage into /boot, don't . Grab that and any modules you created and
    move them to target machine. To make it easy, try not to have any
    modules.

    Leave the existing boot image and options. Add a test configuration in
    the /etc/lilo.config (don't forget to run lilo after editing file.)

    Give it a shot. If it almost works, well - you're most of the way.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
    Steve
