I'm wanting to re-compile my kernel, and keep the original one as well since I don't usually get it right the first time. I've been using a very informative kernel guide at digitalhermit however, I've gotten to this part and am confused:
$cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/bzImage-KERNEL_VERSION
$cp System.map /boot/System.map-KERNEL_VERSION
$ln -s /boot/System.map-KERNEL_VERSION /boot/System.map
I know the original kernel will still be there, and the LILO entry won't be changed except for a new image choice, but won't the step above replace the symbolic link of the original kernel, and mess things up? I'm just having trouble trying to figure out how I can have both the old kernel and the new kernel as choices when it seems there's only room for one System.map. If you could help me, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
