: Does this mean that my kernel is at release 1.1.59 of Linux and if so how
: do I obtain an upgrade for Linux. It seems to me that 1.2.x is the latest
It is.. you have to ftp the source from an ftp site. Try either
get the modules from the v1.1 directory. (1.1.87 modules)
Get the full source for 1.2.x because patching would be a pain in the
*and would increase the risk that you mispatched it. Future
upgrades should be easy just patching. Move the .tar.gz files to /usr/src
remove the linux symlink in /usr/src, untar the two tar files with
tar zxvf filename
install the modules...read the README
cd into linux, do: make config
answer the questions...if you have PCI, make sure you say yes for PCI bus
support .. and say yes for MODVERSION...CONFIG_MOD_VERSION something like
make dep; make clean; make zlilo
^^^^^ if you use LILO, else zImage
then wait a while...until it finishes then do:
/sbin/rdev -R /vmlinuz 1 <--/vmlinuz for LILO, ... vmlinux no..
: version of Linux. I would prefer to do it again as easy as it was with
: the Slackware release.
Is that easy enough?
When you make a patch, you do: patch < pathfilename
and make mrproper to get rid of your old config stuff...
I'm kinda rushed..sorry..gotta go
Hope that helped
