Re: how to upgrade debian to 2.2
I prefer upgrading the kernel by downloading the source, do a make
menuconfig and the a:
make dep && make clean && make bzImage && make modules && make modules
After that I copy the bzImage to /boot, edit my lilo.conf, run lilo and
I'm ready to boot again. I don't throw away old kernel, just in case.
PS. I don't think it would be a good thing if you could upgrade your
kernel with apt-get, because the best kernels are those you compiled for
your computer, not those general thing...
