i have a question regarding the kernel upgrade. Something is not completely clear to me when it come to preparation before upgrading kernel. till now, when upgrading kernel i always just upgraded the source and compiled a new kernel.
Recently i upgraded that way when moving to 2.4.23. But, right now i have a nice kernel, no errormessages when booting, all my hardware works fine. And, ofcourse when something goes wrong when upgrading to 2.6.0 i don't wanna lose that.
the main question is:
how to make sure that when i upgrade to 2.6.0, and something doesn't work out fine, that i can easily go back to the previous kernel. btw, i know i can add that kernel to my lilo.. but what i am more worried about, and what happend to me before, is that when i wanted to use the "old" kernel, i got all kinds of module errors when booting it.
Thanks a lot anyone that responds. i will add all this stuff to my personal faq.
