RE: Kernel Panic was: System is too Big; son of make menuconfig
Thanks Russell and Torsten,
Last night I did a re-install...not a huge loss in that this is still in the
learning/setup phase...and all of this was in the service of setting up some
kind of backup routine.
Suggestion for the KDE folk, by the way: 1. Give us a way to use just the
desktop without installing all the related programs...kate, konquoror,
kword, konsole...in fact the whole Linux setup should be different as far as
these desktop things are concerned...we should be being given a choice of
desktop setups, then for the one we choose, a second set of choices as to
what to include. I don't mean that the options are there, scattered around
throughout the available packages, but that we should start with a dialog
about what to include. 2. In KDE you can save a scheme, but it isn't saved
for everyone and it should be.
This is the thing that had me perplexed: while I did not use the original
configuration as the basis for the kernel rebuild, I did follow it...if
something was built in, I built it in, if something was a module, I made it
a module...so it seems it must have been the --initrd option.
