Subject: Creating kernel-devel and kernel-header

Hey everyone,

>> I'm trying to create a custom kernel for my Fedora 14 system.How do I get the kernel-devel and kernel-header for my custom kernel?
>> Do I have to write a separate spec file for that?Are there any links that will help me with it?

     Above command installs the devel and headers for latest kernel which may not be the case so

     Better command would be

     sudo yum install kernel-devel-$(uname -r)
     sudo yum install kernel-header-$(uname -r)
