Registering the the RHN through up2date is pretty simple. After you install RedHat you will see a red ( if memory serves ) circle at the bottom right of the screen. Just go into that and give it the info that it needs. You can also go to the RHN website ( www.rhn.redhat.com) login, and search for the files you need. It has the new kernels for Athlon, i386, i586, i686. Make sure that the Kernel files you have, are right for your computer. ie- Athlon, i386, i586, i686. I havent had any experience in jumping from one to another. I just keep the same as installed. May not be the best/fastest for the computer, but I only have a few months of experience. Asfar as the packages you will need, I would just try and install it, and if it comes up with a dependancy, than I would install/upgrade just that package. And not try and install everything at once. I havent had that much of a problem installing new kernels, I have only had to have the new kernel, and the new source. Sometimes the source will need somethings to go along with it, but just see what it is, and add just that. Yet, if you have read from this list of another way to update the kernel, than by all means do it their way. Because like I said, I am not that experienced with Linux. Also, I would do a fresh install, and bring it up. And upgrade to the kernel you wish to use, and install the source for the kernel. And than I would start over with the Emu10k1 driver source. Remember when you get to the point of typing the "make" command. You will need to copy and rename that file I told you about. And than the driver should compile properly. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Mirabella, Mathew J" <Mathew.Mirabella@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: <sound-list@xxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Wednesday, March 05, 2003 10:12 PM Subject: RE: [Sound] Audigy sound driver problem with installing. > ok well i can get an internet connection going with wvdial. > do you suggest doing a fresh red hat install, getting onto > the net and using uptodate? > if so. can you tell me how to register with RHN? > also to let you know... i have a very slow internet connection. > > i already downloaded a lot of rpms from the i386 dir of the updates site. > do you suggest that i install all the nonkernal packages from there first > so that uptodate does not have to go downloading lots? > i did download pretty much everything from the updates site.... > > i386/ seemed to contain all packages and kernel stuff > i686/ seemed to only contain kernal packages optimised for i686 > which is what i have > srpms/ seemed to contain sources, but not for everything in i386, > and seeminly nothing for i686 > > Can you tell me how to go about installing everything from here and in what order? > > >From posts to this list, it seems that i should. > 1. install all packages from i386 that are not called kernel* > 2. install the kernal update that i want from i686 > 3. install the kernal source from i386 maybe the kernel doc as well? > but not the kernel boot etc. stuff right?? > > so is it correct that i should not install any kernel stuff from i386, or should i do this before going to the i686 kernel stuff. > > thus, is there any point installing any sources from SRPMS? what are they for. in particular, what is the src rpms for the kernal in SRPMS? > > If i do all this, what is the need for RHN uptodate? if i want to use uptodate, which things should i let it handle...? can i download stuff beforehand and still use uptodate to install them from local dirs? > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > -----Original Message----- > From: Clyde McKelvey [mailto:cmckelvey@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] > Sent: Thursday, 6 March 2003 11:23 AM > To: sound-list@xxxxxxxxxx > Subject: Re: [Sound] Audigy sound driver problem with installing. > > > Than your kernel source prabably didnt install correct. > I would do a fresh install if you can.
