I seem to have problems when I attempt to install a new kernel. I know that
I have to put the kernel file into the kernels folder inside the system
folder. Also, I've been putting the vmlinux file into the /boot directory.
I can get the system to boot with the new kernel, any time I change the
kernel; however, I always get warnings about how my /boot/system.map file
does not match up with my kernel version. The only kernel upgrade I ever
did that fixed this was when I installed an rpm with the 2.2.6-16b kernel.
But I can't find any more rpm files with newer versions of the kernel...
As a side note, I've installed the newest mol and am trying to get it to
work. By 2.2.6 kernel isn't new enough to not require physical patching,
and when I choose a newer kernel with BootX, my system.map file doesn't
match up and mol won't run.
On an 8500 running 8.6, is it still possible to use the Bootvars and quick
programs to get LinuxPPC to boot up through OF WITHOUT BootX? I would
personally rather be running LinuxPPC most of the time, especially once I
get mol functioning.
Here's my last problem... I have bochs installed, but I have no idea where
I need to go, paste typing in "bochs" to get it running properly. Do I need
a DOS boot floppy, or is FreeDOS supposed to be already installed?
Just as a note, I think this is a bug somewhere in inetd: running on a
fresh install, telnet and ftp will not run together, from uncommenting the
lines in /etc/inetd.conf. When I have ftp running, telnet doesn't work.
The only way to get telnet to work is to shut off ftp. I have proftpd
installed... would wu-ftp fix this?
ps thanks for your time and effort in even just reading this post.
