Upgrading to 12: Kernel Config Question
Hi. This is my first post, but I've been a lurker for years, and I'm not new to Slackware. I just wonder about the upgrade from Slackware 11 to 12. It says you need an initrd so that the generic kernel will understand your fs (mine's reiserfs).
I have 2 parts to this question.
But let's say after I do this and get Slack 12 running fine. Then what if I configure my kernel myself, using make menuconfig, then include (built-in) the support for reiserfs and boot it up, then do I still need initrd?
And if I upgrade the kernel to 2.6.22.x or whatever the latest one is, myself, BEFORE upgrading to Slack 12, do I even need to worry about the kernel at all? (Current Kernel is 22.214.171.124)
