my server system is low on disk. To install a new kernel I think i shall do the following:
compile the kernel on another system.
copy bzImage along with config, System.map and of course the laodable module in /lib/modules and transfer them to the server.
Now, I can remove the server's old kernel to free up the space and put the the files in /boot as well as copying loadable modules to
no,... this is not the way, this way I need to make the drivers the image as well. There's another way, in ubuntu I can make .deb files of the headers and the linux, if I transfer only those two files to the server, I think i can install the new kernel using dpkg. what do you think?
