how-to create custom openqrm kernel

  • Hello Matt,

    I want to create my own customize kernel for openqrm initrd-template considering that upon svn co we couldn't found redhat.x86_64 tar file in the usr/share/openqrm/etc/templates directory. Do hope you can give us a step-by-step procedure on how - to - create our customize Red Hat 5 x86 kernel using a special (very plug-able) initrd-template  for our openQRM server for us to use for our network deployment.

    I appreciate if you could help me on this for I tried to figure this out for a month already with  my trial and error testing approach but of no resolution.

    Thank you.

    Hi again Lawrence,

    you can either use the centos.x86_64 initrd template which should be binary compatible to RHEL.
    For creating a custom RHEL initrd template do the following :

    - login/ssh to a RHEL system
    - svn co openQRM sources
    - run "make && make install"
    - scp /usr/share/openqrm/etc/templates/openqrm-initrd-default.tgz :/usr/share/openqrm/etc/templates/openqrm-initrd-template.rhel.x86_64.tgz

    many thanks and have a nice day,
