Re: updated kernel problem
I just grabbed your 2.4.20-4 pmac build and I've rebooted and it's fine.
Two things that seem different from previous kernel upgrades (I
could just have missed these before):
It didn't automatically create the symbolic link from /vmlinux ->
It left my old link as it was and I made the changes by hand.
and I've also found this in /boot/ for the first time:
What is it?
Anyway, thanks for correcting the problem so quickly.
