Re: ibm server black screen console



Also i have read that the next version of the kernel takes care of this issue -
I think it is kernel 2.6-32-20 or something like that ---
Can you tell me - if i am on squeeze - what would be the proceedure to
update to the new kernel ?
Is there soemthing easy spelled out on the internet that can help me
migrate to the new kernel to give it a try ?
thanks
