kernel recompiled?? a little confused
i think i just finished recompiling my kernel according to the recompile for newbies instructions at the top of this forum. the thing is i made a mistake, instead of copying the new entry into my lilo.conf i misread the instructions and renamed the original entry.
when i rebooted it said it was loading "slack.old" when it came to loading X it failed, seems my nvidia drivers needed to be reloaded coz it works now after doing so and im online on the machine now. it seems to be working fine
my question is did i actually recompile my original kernel without backing it up and renamed it?
or possibly did it not recompile at all?
i feel like i was lucky this time that i was able to boot the machine.
let me knwo if you need more info
