rpi-update on slackware arm
I did an install of slackware arm current (as of 8 april) today using fatdog's image, kernel, etc. and after a quick play around I ran rpi-update which gave me a shiny new /lib/modules/3.10.37+ and I expect the newest firmware but the kernel was not upgraded or so it seemed, after trying several more times and having a look around it turned out kernel upgrades were going into /boot and not the vfat partition, mmcblk0p1. I copied the new kernel and other updated files over and rebooted to a 3.10.37 kernel. I don't remember having to do this after my last install back in December. Is this something to be expected. It is not mentioned on the fatdog rpiupdate page.
