Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Visit here -->>> Kernaeltrap. -- and read up on the new Version. For the Frame Buffer errors read there, that if you disable the 4K in, Kernel Hacking, 4th Optiion, say no, let it run at 8K, then the Framebuffer issue will not crash your system on 184.108.40.206. Go to this site and be sure you take a look, as I have been reading up on a lot here, to make sure that Ihave compiled the 220.127.116.11 correctly, found that I have not and many here have not also, and there they have some great answers to the problems related to out group issues.
Yes I will state, I have FTP'd the 18.104.22.168 and also 2.6.6 and will attempt the 2.6.116 for now. maybe later the 2.6.6, as stated on the other site linuxtrap, there has been reported problems with reisrejfs systems. Be sure you read all the "read me's" too. They are important.
Also the Kerneltrap is a nice resouce to review some of the things you may be needing to upgrade your kernel bug free.
Posted when I was falling asleep. Hurried to make it known.

Originally posted by Seppel I'm pretty sorry, but I didn't get what you wanted to say. This is no flaming, but please add some more dots, colons and things like that to your posting, so the sentence structuring gets clearer.
Ok added more ,,,, ...... ----- : "" and what I could think of to break it into small sentances, or phrases, for better understanding.
Ok, since getting this, one note, I have found the xconfig will break, along with the gconfig. Do I have to be in the XWindow To run these? Admits, this is the first time I have tried to run the "make xconfig", and got the error 2 "can not connect to the X Window Server"

Tanks a lot - this makes things much clearer. Since I use 22.214.171.124 this hopefully doesn't affect me. However, thanks a lot for the information (though you should give this thread a name which is pointing more to the solution you've found). I admire you contribution to the Slack community :-)

i always open a console in X and " su " to " root "
-cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-126.96.36.199
-cp System.map /boot/System.map-188.8.131.52
-cp .config /boot/config-184.108.40.206
( and i also copy the config-file to my home-dir. ).
if you've edited lilo.conf ok. then just running lilo will do.

So.. what is the right way to do it..? I've been doing it the way it's been outlined by egag and it seems to work ok. Care to point anything extra that we all might have missed?

Thanks for the heads up
Well I must say. I tried it the way they posted it, the read me and for the first time, because I did not think I needed to, ran xconfig and it could not run. So I think it's a issue for the Xwindows, and not GNome or KDE. The GConfig is for Gnome I think, and I don't use that. the make menuconfig is the one for KDE. I think they need to post all that to make it more refined.
A few other things, Network information, I have used the IPv6 and Like it, but........forgot one essential thing. The network card setup. Well now I know to use the tulip settings and it will work. So next is the 2.6.6 and testing.
The site I sent everyone to is to get a better handle on how to.. and make the streamlining of the installs better.

Sigh, I though we are having a dejavu and Linus Trovalds is revisiting the older release number to make it look more stable.
Note to myself: Must stop getting excited everytime seeing the word released.
Ok, so asks what is the ACTUAL version? I have seen "Official 2.4.30rc typo" and 2.6.6. and 2.6.9 and 2.6.5 and so on. I have the 2.6.9 currnetly and am going to play with it. Is there going to be a 3.0.0? Just curious.
the Latest "Official" Versoin 18.104.22.168 Linux. This is the Real official release version and the Latest via a Check on Kernel.org site via FTP there. Looking through all of them, the Linux 22.214.171.124 is the last and most recent and my mistakes are that I did not look as hard as I should at the Dates of the files. The Kernel Versioning is at best, very confusing. It's like the BC Calendar, it gets smaller by the version, not bigger? or ??? Still getting the hang on this. Setting up the initial Linux / X Desktop is not a problem, mouse, sound and display. These have come to me very easy. The Programming part is what I have trouble with. Versioning too. This is where a Linux Bible will come in very handy.
