    recompiling kernel

    I am recompiling the kernel with the src rpm. I haven't been able to get any kernel to boot properly since i got this server.

    I really could use some help, below i posted lspci, lsmod and cat interrupts. What I really need help with is which kernel modules are necessary for my server.

    lspci: http://pastebin.com/fe87e50d
    lsmod: http://pastebin.com/f17d063da
    interrupts: http://pastebin.com/m6af0e40d

    I have already tried a kernel with ext3, and sata support compiled in but it never boots.

    I dont see anything odd about your hardware..

    What flavor are you running?
    What error on boot are you getting?
    What steps are you taking from building from the rpm src?
    Have you tried pulling the source from kernel.org?

    Why are you bothering? The stock kernel is best a vast majority of the time, and it's really not worth the trouble to save a miniscule amount of bootup time. As keep in mind that you'll have to recompile whenever a kernel update comes out.

    Only compile the kernel if it has something missing or something's broken.

    if you have boot problems than your hardware might not be supported, I doubt that a kernel recompile would solve your problems

    i wanted to do a kernel recompile to get some performance improvements such as NCQ as well as remove the bloat thats in the kernel right now.
