Sarge kernel update, using newer kernel, should I update older kernel?
For a Debian Sarge/Stable install, I originally installed Sarge when Sarge
just went stable. I believe the first kernel was 2.6.8 that I installed as
part of the Sarge install (instead of the 2.4.x series). I subsequently
upgraded to 2.6.11-k-7 (pulled from debian testing or unstable at the time)
and am running that kernel currently. When I upgraded, I left 2.6.8 as a
choice at bootup.
While running 2.6.11-k-7, can I update/upgrade the 2.6.8 kernel that shows as
upgradable in synaptic/apt-get? I'd like to keep an up to date 2.6.8 for
emergency purposes, but I don't know if the upgrade will work if I'm running
2.6.11 at the time of the upgrade. Or do I have to boot into 2.6.8 prior to
Will upgrading 2.6.8 as the stable updates request just add a patch to the
kernel, or will I have to go through all the kernel flags again, the modules
