i am new to linux. i have installed suse 9.2
some time ago i tried to use apt-synaptic to update programs, because i saw that yast didn't update many of them (for example from kde 3.3 to 3.4). using synaptic also updated the kernel (i marked all updates). after that i couldn't boot: kernel panic.
for that time i installed all again. i tried again because i wasn't sure of what was happening. same thing but this time i found out how to boot starting from the installation dvd (run installed version), and i downgraded everthing. it worked. so i started to look in the web for similar problems and i found the mk_initrd thing.
but continuing readin i understood (wrong?) that yast2 runs it automatically.
so i used synaptic only to download the packages and after i installed them with yast2. it ran suseconfig but it all happened again!! kernel panic....
so, does suseconfig (or anyway yast2) run mk_initrd? is this the problem?
