Re: How to downgrade kernel?

Anyway, at the expense of being locked to a specific kernel version,
I'd really like to get it working. So I use apt-get to download the
appropriate kernel, headers and pcmcia-modules. But how do I
"activate" it? Presumably I need an initrd image in my boot
partition? None have been forthcoming.
When you apt-getted the kernel, it should have placed the new kernel
and the initrd.img in /boot, created symlink (vmlinuz and initrd) in /
that points to them, and then run lilo. When lilo ran, it should have
warned you about putting "initrd=/initrd.img" in /etc/lilo.conf.
It should, and indeed it does whenever I upgrade the kernel. But it
doesn't when you're downgrading the kernel, which is fair enough.
Performing these steps manually got it working.
Thanks a lot for your help!
