hello friends i am patching my kernel for support of mobile ipv6 and download the patch form
and download new kernel from ""
and following the guide to patch the kernel ""
and to compile the kernel ""
but problem comes when i reboot with the system with the new kernel .
from the message it seems that the some default setting to run a normal kernel is not done.
i tried to load the old " .config " file into new kernel so that the default setting which were working in the
previous setup comes in the new kernel to .but on reboot message comes that "modules are compiled for the
previous kernel and cann't be used for the the new patched kernel"
can any body tell me how to load the defalt setting for a kernel to work,so that i can add option which i required
(for mobile ipv6)if i seems to be less explitic i will be very thanlkful to you if you can contact me

eagerly waiting for your help

Unzip the kernel stuff again into a directory ...

go there and run the command:

install your patch

make mrproper

copy the old .config file down into the source directory...

run the commands:

make oldconfig

If you want to change any other kernel settings, run the command:

make menuconfig
(or use make config or make xconfig for this step, if you want)

Now do:

make dep

make bzImage

make modules

make modules_install

Now, copy the kernel into place, setup your grub/lilo to point to the new kernel and reboot.
