Change Kernel for PowerBook G4
Dear Debian Users,
i've just installed Debian Woody 3.0.2 from CDROM on my G4 PowerBook
(November 2002) with 1GHz, 1MB L3 Cache and a Radeon 9000 (64 MB DDR
SDRAM) Graphic Card in it. I can't setup X11.
I think i should change my kernel, then all my problems are solved. I
want to install Ben Herrenschmidt's Kernel
(2.4.23-pre5-ben0) from this homepage:
I've already done this with dselect on my x86 Architecture. But i don't
know how to do this with a tar.gz file (without dselect). I installed
all packages till today with dselect and my CD's. I will use my airport
card, download the Kernel and burn it on CD (i've not the possibility
to use Ethernet - Network). So, can anyone tell me in detail what to
do? Download Kernel and also config. file? Ok, create the CD.
Console: mount /cdrom that's clear!
Then: Commads for the tar.gz file? Including the kernel?
How do i have to change the /etc/Yaboot.conf file? How do i delete the
old kernel? MacOSX shall remain on my harddisk!
ybin, then reboot?
It would be great, if someone could help me. Thanks a lot!
