no - that's why the packages "kernel-devel" and "kernel-headers"
to built modules against it - did that years ago for vmware PV drivers
You could also build a kernel using mock and fedpkg .
Note: this memo doesn't cover modifying .config and enable kernel
modules but hope that can help in some way.
yum install mock fedpkg
To use mock, a user should become a member of the mock group by adding
their username to
the mock line in /etc/group. This can be done with the following
sudo /usr/sbin/usermod -a -G mock $USER
Note that mock is not intended to be run directly as root.
Beware that adding a user to the mock group means that the user can
easily get root access
on the machine without providing a password.
(as normal user)
fedpkg clone kernel -a
fedpkg switch-branch f20;
fedpkg srpm (this create src.rpm but also download also sources)
cat kernel_spec.patch | patch SPECS/kernel.spec
rpmbuild -bs kernel.spec --define "_sourcedir ." --define
'_srcrpmdir .' && mock -r fedora-20-x86_64
--rebuild ./kernel-3.15.8-200.fc20.src.rpm --target=x86_64
--define="buildid .sb" --with baseonly --without debuginfo --no-clean
(as root install it)
(you need have in /etc/mock/site-defaults.cfg , is not default
config_opts['createrepo_on_rpms'] = True )
--nogpg update --skip-broken
