I'm about to install FC5 using the first CD and download the rest of the stuff from the Net.
Problem is, it appears that FC5 has a bug when trying to compile the Zaptel module that is used by the open-source PBX Asterisk to use an FXO card to connect it to the phone network:
Fedora Core 5 - Zaptel will not compile against the stock FC5 kernel, due to a bug in the kernel. You will get an error message like "module format invalid" when you try to modprobe the zaptel modules.
To make zaptel work with FC5, download an updated kernel. (As of 27 March 2006, the updated kernel has not yet been released, but can be downloaded from http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...tes/testing/5/.
You'll want the get both the kernel and kernel-devel RPMs for your particular architecture.) -jsmith
Does it mean that I can just download the two RPM's (kernel-devel-2.6.17-1.2139
) from Fedora's site
, do the usual rpm -Uvh, reboot, and choose the new kernel in the bootloader... or is it more involved?
