Building Custom Kernel Modules

This howto will help you create the system environment for building custom kernels and kernel modules.

Install Developer Tools

First, you need to install the developer environment:

yum groupinstall "Development Tools"

Install Kernel or Kernel Devel

If you are building a kernel module/driver, you will likely only need the kernel-devel package:

yum install kernel-devel

If you are building your own customer kernel, run:

yum install kernel-sourcecode
