I'm a little confused here. What is your [i]running[/i] kernel? Are you trying to rebuild the kernel against some earlier version of the kernel ??

In any event, you don't have to recompile the whole kernel. Try building a kernel module by following the instructions at:

http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/BuildingKernelModules

Method 1 is the easiest.

That is the only piece of clear information that I can follow from your posts. You say --

Please explain why you feel "[i]there's a need to recompile a kernel[/i]".

From the running system, please post the output returned by the following commands --

[code]
[b]uname -rmi
rpm -qa kernel\* | sort
rpm -q centos-release[/b]
[/code]
