...you're running the latest kernel
Thomas Hood sez you then:
tar zxvf linux-2.4.16.tar.gz
mv linux linux-2.4.16
make xconfig choose your options
sudo mv arch/i386/boot/bzImage
sudo cp System.map
sudo make modules_install
Then modify lilo to boot using this image instead of the 2.2.17
Thomas provides the config for 2.4.13ac5 which I base my install on almost entirely, except I change the xircom net crd for the tulip_cb and the pcnet drivers (modular of course)
After compilation, and a brief confusion when I forget to change the symblink to
It chokes when it checks the root system - "The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. . The kernel mailing list suggests this is because devfs has been compiled in and it is trying to automount
All works but no PCMCIA. Perhaps I need the modules. Worth a try, though, is my discovery that i can apt-get 2.4.16 . No, try that and theres a load of crap about intird that I don't understand.
OK, now have 2.4 and 2.2 on the go. Nothing in
Redo make modules and make modules_install. Get some, but doesn't load my gold card. Also things like the cs4232 are missing.
Perhaps redo the make xconfig? OK. Poke a t a few things. tulip_cb is now part of tulip in 2.4 so change that. add the cs4232. etc. mak && mak && make && make. copy, vi, lilo, reboot. I'm getting blase, is that a good sign?
Must be, becaus enot only does it all now work, but the d-link works fine too. The cs4232 deosn't work yet, but wer're getting there. Good chance I can get tpctl and such working so I can examine how the card is configured. Of course, putting the Psion back in my cupboard gives me an impetus to get mwave modem going too.
