It took me a while to find the time to recompile the kernel from the
kernel-source... Which looked like it worked, meaning the vmlinux
executable is there in the build directory. Thanks for the help.
I seems I have developed a new problem tough... When tring to install
the new kernel I installed it using "rpm -Uvh" which worked all right
but uninstalled the current kernel at the same time. Now I get this
error when I try to install a kernel... something about grubby not
being able to find a sutible template. Does anyone know what this
Can someone post thier /boot/grub/menu.lst file such that I might cut
and paste it... The don't want to reinstall again...

I have been using the CVS version of the driver with 2.6 for awhile,

complete its compilation process.
When the kernel is built, vmlinux is created. I believe that the
2.6 kernel RPMs package vmlinux in the kernel-debuginfo RPM.
you can get vmlinux for your running kernel by rebuilding the kernel
using the kernel-source RPM with the kernel config file in the boot
directory, or by installing the kernel-debuginfo RPM.
Personally, I have been rebuilding the kernel from the kernel-source
RPM, since kernel-debuginfo is so large.
