I'm a Slackware guy -- never liked the whole RPM/yum/apt-get/etc thingies. To that end, I need some help. What I want to do is download the kernel source for 18.104.22.168 for FC12. The problem is that I was able to yum install kernel and it got for me this ugly beast that I was unable to compile as there was "no rule to compile missing-syscalls" as the error that halted my progress. Not to be out done, I downloaded linux-22.214.171.124 from kernel.org and was able to reproduce almost all of the kernel tree. The one thing that I know I will need is drm_kms_helper (as I'm really attempting to make the 126.96.36.199 pure tree look like the FC12 modified tree).
To that end, is there a way to patch the pure kernel with the FC12 patches so that I can get the drm_kms_helper.ko without breaking the kernel build
is there a way that I can get the kernel source RPM to build?
Any of you Fedora fanatics please let me know.
