I'm running a Slackware distribution (not 1.1.1) It came with 0.99.13 kernel
and all was okay. I wanted to 'upgrade' to the new 0.99.14 kernel so I down-
loaded the file from ftp.cdrom.com and thought all would be easy. Next I
did setup and installed the new kernel. I fixed my lilo bootup file and the
old kernel image was placed in /tmp. I reboot...and I get 0.99.13 kernel
booting up. I'm confused! How can I fix this and why does it do this?
Thanks

Be happy that the system started! You have to rerun LILO everytime you
make a change to your config-file. This is: edit /etc/lilo/config to fit
the changes you made, THEN RUN ./lilo in /etc/lilo and you will get some
messages about the processed entries. Then and ONLY then reboot.

1. Upgrading 0.99.14 kernel to 1.0 kernel

 Hello.

 I am running Slackware 1.1.1 (0.99.14) and I would like to upgrade to
the Linux 1.0 kernel.

 I downloaded the full kernel source (linux-1.0.tar.gz) from sunsite
yesterday.

 Problem: I have only 4.7 MB left in my root partition. :(

 Question: Could I simply 'rm -f' my existing /usr/src/linux and then
untar linux-1.0.tar.gz in its place *or* would I have to apply any and
all kernel patches that were issued between pl-14 and Linux 1.0 before I
could do that?

 Follow-up question: If it is possible to install Linux 1.0 without
applying the patches that were issued between pl-14 and Linux 1.0, would
I then be able to apply the patches that came after Linux 1.0?

 TIA, Bill
