Re: How to downgrade kernel?
Anyway, at the expense of being locked to a specific kernel version,
I'd really like to get it working. So I use apt-get to download the
appropriate kernel, headers and pcmcia-modules. But how do I
"activate" it? Presumably I need an initrd image in my boot
partition? None have been forthcoming.
When you apt-getted the kernel, it should have placed the new kernel and
the initrd.img in /boot, created symlink (vmlinuz and initrd) in / that
points to them, and then run lilo. When lilo ran, it should have warned
you about putting "initrd=/initrd.img" in /etc/lilo.conf. If you did,
before lilo finished running, then all that should be left is to reboot.
If you did not, add that line to the appropriate stanza in lilo.con,
re-run lilo, and reboot.
