Hmm, if I remove the /vmlinuz symlink before installing the kernel-image
I get the following:
/vmlinuz does not exist. Installing from scratch, eh?
Or maybe you don't want a symbolic link here. Hmm.?
I notice that yo do not have vmlinuz symbolic
link. I can create one for you, and it shall be
updated by newer kernel image packages. This is
useful if you use a boot loader like lilo.
Do you want me to link /boot/vmlinuz-2.2.17 to vmlinuz?[Yn]
Hmm, this is not the way I would like it. I hate additional questions.
OK it doesn't remove the /boot/vmlinuz link but that doesn't help if
I would like to install another kernel version.
