Hope someone might know the answer to this. I manually upgraded my kernel to 2.4.3 from 2.2.16 now whenever I try to install apps via RPM, RPM complains if there is a dependency on a 2.4 kernel. (Redhat 7.0 base)
It says failed dependency kernel >= 2.4 required.
Has anyone seen this before? and if you have how did you fix it?
I'm using a --no-dep to install stuff but would like a better way :)
From what I've heard, manually editing the RPM database is, well, risky... it's a binary file and likely to have checksums etc
A quick hack that might work: copy your compiled kernel somewhere safe, install a standard 2.4 kernel RPM, and then switch back to your custom one. I've never tried this, but see no reason why it wouldn't work.
Alternatively, download a source RPM (SRPM) of the kernel, and compile as usual with whatever options you need. This should keep the RPM database happy...
