upgrading to a newer kernel

upgrading to a newer kernel

Post by Christoph Kukuli » Mon, 23 Jan 1995 00:00:41

I installed Linux (Yggdrasil Summer 94 edition) after getting around
lots of quirks I had with that CD. Many errors during adding packages.
(The standard installation was broken somehow - I installed a custom
30 MB miniumum installation ).

Anyway, now it is running and I want to run a newer kernel
since my new motherboard is a PCI board (I don't have any PCI device
though) and it has IDE and SCSI (ncr) on board.

Unfortunately the kernel that came with the YGGDRASIL CD panics - it
cannot find any SCSI hosts. I also have an ATAPI IDE FX400 CDROM drive
which I hope Linux has a driver for.

Since I'm only a casual Linux user (as you may see from my .sig) I'm
looking for a painless way to

1)  ftp a kernel from somewhere (boot floppy)

2)  create a boot disk from that

3)  boot that disk, mount /dev/sda3 and put the kernel on it

4)  boot hard disk.

Can anyone help me with the above? Thank you.

Please answer via email since I don't read news too often.

1. Help upgrading kernel using newer version of libc


        I wish to upgrade my kernel to ver 1.1.92.  Thus, I need to
        upgrade my gcc to ver 2.6.2 and my libc to ver 4.6.20+.

        I  have already installed my gcc 2.6.2 and awaiting to compile
        my new kernel.   But the libc-4.6.27.tar.gz contains only
        the source not the binary of libc.  I cannot continue to
        compile to make libc since the new gcc requires libc-4.6-XX.

        How do I proceed?  Any site that has a binary of any libc-4.6.XX?
