This is how I patch the Kernel (in RH9)
- I Install GMP
- also MODUTILS
Recompiling the KERNEL
make bzImage (usa compressao bzip2)
- OPENSWAN INSTALL
I copy the bzImage to /boot
If everything OK I edit lilo.conf and add
Also I Create the RAM drive...
mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.x.img 2.x
Is there any faster/better way to do this???
Please helpe me because I loose all of my time trying to patch the kernel
then testing the tunnels! :/

Guess the readme should change "oldmod" for "module".

Without the actual errors, we can't really help you further. It could be
that you already have some *swan applied to your kernel tree, or that some
other kernel bit is giving you troubles.

"make module minstall" is all you should need.
