[CentOS] Problems with building a complete kernel

My bad - I rechecked and it is the correct source.  AND I found that the
make install (with make modules_install first) takes care of GRUB for


Now I can't boot because the installed Centos 4.4 was from the
distribution DVD, and it depends on the lvm to load.  My build doesn't
know about the lvm and it refuses to boot - it dies coming up with an
error from lvm, followed by two more where it can't find a file system,
then the kernel panics (and hangs the machine).

How do I get around lvm?

Thanks (again).

The source tarball should be included in the SRPM for your kernel, I'd


Once installed (if installed as root) it'll be in
/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES, otherwise it'll be in wherever your
.rpmmacros file points.
