Slackware Upgrade: 1.2.13 -> 2.0 ??

Slackware Upgrade: 1.2.13 -> 2.0 ??

Post by ckathma » Sat, 14 Sep 1996 04:00:00



Has anyone had 1.2.13 of Slackware Linux (3.0) and upgraded to the new
Linux 2.0 kernel? If so, I wonder if you could point me in the direction of
how I could do this. Right now, Im still at 1.2.13 and I think there may be
merit to going to a new kernel (yes?). Anyone that has gone through
this...I would be grateful in knowing:

(1) Where did you get the new Linux 2.0 kernel?

(2) How did you go about installing it?

(3) What other changes (i.e. to X) did you have to make? Did you have to
upgrade other utilities, etc?

Thanks for your help in advance.

1. strange problems 1.2.13 --> 2.0.0 --> 1.2.13

Hi,

I have some strange problems with the new kernel source tree...

after the installation of the new sysvinit-2.62 the linux-2.0.0 kernel
complains sh:/bin/bash cannot execute...
with 1.99.7 this works fine
and at least I'm totally unable to recompile the 1.2.13 source tree due
some strange asm errors in main occurring in asm/io.h referenced by
bugs.h  (also within the asm tree). Of course I checked the appropriate
links to for the linux source tree /usr/include/linux
                                                asm

Please help....
