i'm trying learn linux better.
Target running it on an old machine,not internet connected,witha cd-rom drive etc..
i have already opened a thred on this forum and i receiced a positive feedback.
i will download a recent light linux distro
in the mean time i installled an old mandriva 2006 with kernel 2.6.12-12mdk
and i have some trouble wiht 2 drivers....i'm trying to fix
the new question is.....
lilo boot manager...that point to the above kernel....
i can copy an updated mandriva kernel source and compile it.
Then i have to instsall the compiled kernel aside to the old one, giving to lilo.conf
the second boot option,up to now i ..... hope to be able to perform.
the question is:
loading the new kernel,then, all the intalled programs (all rpms) will function ?
(i cross fingers...)
this will be useful also for the future....new kernels keep insde a lot of new devices driver and improvements.
Thanks in advance for the help
