    Compiling RHE 5 kernel

    Hello,

    I have always used RPM kernels from the RedHat Network, in this time I need to compile an SMP kernel in a server that is used to serve common webhosting traffic (web, ftp, email, etc) with cPanel.

    I have compiled kernels from source in desktops stations, but never in remote servers.. do you have any recommendations to do this at a Dual Xeon 3.2 RHE 5 + cPanel server? Oh.. almost forgot.. I will also compile it with GRsecurity.

    Should I use a src kernel from RedHat, or a kernel.org latest kernel?

    Thanks!

    I know how to compile a kernel, as said before I already did it on many desktops running Linux, but never on a server with RHE + cPanel.. that is what's matter here (RHE 5 running cPanel and the possible conflicts that this may cause while using Grsecurity), any suggestions please?

    Thanks.

    Get the source tarball from kernel.org, configure/compile your kernel to your likings and then issue make rpm and install the resulting package. That should about do it :-).
