Due to lack of space on this site, and the many kernels I have to support, I'll only post nosrc.rpm files here.
Now what does it mean for you as the enduser?
- First of all a shorter download time.
- Then saved bandwidth for you as you only need to download the kernel.org tarball once for every kernel.org version I'm building against.
- You must place the current kernel tarball in your ~/rpm/SOURCES (or wherever your rpm build tree points to) before you use the 'rpm --rebuild nosrc_rpm_name'
Currently my *src.rpm's automatically build: up, enterprise, i686up4GB, source kernels and the src.rpm
To change (enable/disable) this when you rebuild, you have to use the: '--with' and '--without' switches:
-- with win4lin
-- with laptop
the 'win4lin' option will build win4lin enabled kernels,
and the 'laptop' option will build with laptop-specific changes, currently only make USB support builtin
EX. To build only the i686up4GB and it's kernel-source you would do:
rpm --rebuild kernel-tmb-2.6.7-2.tmb.3mdk-1-1mdk.nosrc.rpm --without up --without enterprise --without src
For a closer description of the above kernel flavours, go to the:
The Mandrake Linux Development Community Wiki (Cooker)
And for those that thinks this is too much work!
You can always head over to your local MDK Contrib mirror and download the prebuilt kernels and the full src.rpm from there...
Have Fun !!
