I'm about to compile a kernel (1st time) on a 250 mhz G3 Powerbook.
I've read a bunch of stuff online, but have a couple of questions.
Is the current linux kernel image /boot/vmlinux-2.2.xx ?
I've read I should back this up as 'running_kernal.something'
How would I boot with the backed up kernel image then if I botch everything?
Most of the documentation I've found refers to Lilo, but I am using
after I compile everything, do I just replace /boot/vmlinux-2.2.xx with
Does BootX just look for whatever's in the /boot directory? Does
anything else get changed in the /boot directory? (BootX just has that
little pop-up menu after 'Kernal:' that only has one 'linux' option, so
that's why I'm confused as to setting it to boot the new kernel).
Any help would be great. Thanks
