downgrading kernel?
 
I'm running YDL on Mac and want to use mac-on-linux. But it seems that the current version of mol is too old for the kernel. Is there any way to downgrade the kernel?

Is there a newer version of mol that you can use for the newest kernel?
Which kernel are we talking about here anyway?
And if you really want to, even though I wouldn't do it except if there was something not working with my new kernel, just download older kerlen, configure it, make it, install it, and then add that to your boot loader so it boots that older kernel.

pd. sorry to hear you use macintrash, :-P

This is the message I get: No mol-0.9.63 kernel modules corresponding to the running 2.4.18-0.9a kernel... Recompile the mol kernel modules (recommended).. I guess the best thing is to wait for mol to update. And I'm just starting out with Linux so I haven't got around to learning config, make and all that.
Btw, I'm very pleased with my Mac
:D

hmmm, ok. But you are still going to have to install it and then compile it into the kernel as a module for it to work.
What is exactly that for? Mol.? I've never heard of it.

:DzLinuxz:D

oh yeah, Macs a nice Toys, :-P

Well, I managed to rebuild the mol kernel so it matches the new kernel, but now I can't install the rpm.. It says: cannot get exclusive lock, cannot open Packages index using db3 -operation not permitted(1)..
Wow, this Linux-science isn't easy to learn..

Mol enables me to run macos on Linux. So I can have the best of both worlds.. :)

hehe, alright.
Did you do it as root or as regular user?, because I saw on what you said something about permission denied...so try it as root.
how long have you been using linux for?

I was logged in as root, but it still didn't work. It works with the package manager, but as soon as I've rebuilt the rpm and have to fetch it from some place other than desktop it all goes wrong.. What's the difference between su root, sudo root and sudo -s?
I've only been using Linux for 3 days.. Before then I've had a little experience with unix and macosx (which is unix-based). So one can say I'm extremely new at this.. But it's fun! :D

3 days, that's pretty good, at least you got your internet working just fine, :P
it took me a couple of weeks to figure my thing out...heh, about 4 years ago, but anyway
su in to become root user in the command prompt
sudo is to execute a file as another user if you have enough
privileges by authenticating with a password. So a sudo doesn't necessarily have to be root user, it can be any user.

I don't think I can get mol to work, it's all sorts of problems now.. But the whole idea with all this is to experiment, right :)

Thanx for the help!
