Change kernel provided with another from CD.


Hey all,

I have trouble installing Slackware 10 from a USB CD drive, so I downloaded the whole thing and installed from my hard drive. However, during this install I was not given the option to choose the bareacpi.i kernel which suits my needs perfectly. Instead, the default kernel was installed (I believe it's bare.i).

My question is, is it possible for me to switch the stock bare.i to the stock bareacpi.i?

PS. I can't compile a new kernel.

Hi,

Simply, yes.

Just copy the 3 files from slackware-10.0/kernels/bareacpi.i into /boot
Code:
cp bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-bareacpi-2.4.26
cp config /boot/config-bareacpi-2.4.26
gunzip System.map.gz
cp System.map /boot/System.map-bareacpi-2.4.26
Then add an entry for vmlinuz-bareacpi-2.4.26 to your lilo.conf and run lilo.

If you can boot the new kernel with no problems (which would only be an error on your part as the kernels are the same apart from the acpi support) then you can delete your old *-ide-2.4.26 files and redirect the symlinks (vmlinuz etc) to point at your new kernel, config and map files and change your lilo.conf to reflect these changes.

Of course you could just make a bootdisk, copy the three new files over the *-ide-2.4.26 files, run lilo to check it's output for errors and reboot.

Oh and remember to add acpi=on to the kernel parameters in lilo.conf
