Howto - Parition. Kernel install/upgrade. Looking for pointers.
This is not necessarily slackware problem but since I am using slackware I decided here is the place.
I would like some pointers(links,tutorials or smth) about these topics:
- partitioning - howto partition multi OS system/swap etc etc.
- kernel - How these vmlinuz|System.map|config in /boot directory work to make backup of my current working kernel so I can experiment. Running different slackware installations with same kernel etc.
Those are core susbjects I cannot yet understand. I would really appreciate if you could share some links, ideas about these problems.
Ultimately my goal now is to be able to freely set single/multiOS (linux,windows systems) and build kernels and experiemnt without worrying this will crash my system irrevertably.
Thank you in advance for spending time. Happy coding.
Partitioning: Well, there's QTparted for a nice GUI partitioner. I like cfdisk myself. . .
To backup your kernel files, just copy them to something like vmlinuz.backup, System.map.backup, and config.backup. Create a new entry in your bootloader that duplicates the existing one, but points to the backed-up kernel instead. That should be all you need..
You could checkout my sig for some good reads!
