How to install a new kernel?
This is probably a stupid newbie question, but it's the first time I
install Debian on a sparc and I could not find any hint in the Kernel Readme.
Apparently there is no make bzImage in a Sparc.
So I read the docs I found and tryed to figure out how silo loads the
What I did looked reasonable to me:
make vmlinux (and modules etc...)
gzip vmlinux and call it vmlinuz.
copy it to /boot/vmlinuz (where the 2.2 kernel from debian also resides)
Copy System.map too.
edit silo.conf and make it point to the new kernel.
But, Silo on the sparcstation 10 I use won't boot. Something about the
image not being in the right format, not fitting in a buffer or similar.
What's the right procedure to install a new kernel on a sparc4m then? As I
understood I don't need to execute silo like it is needed with lilo to tell
it the address on the disk.
