Go to RPMS.cooker and you'll find a 2.6.0-test rpm there. 2.6.0 s/b along shortly.

Mandrake Cooker is the development version of Mandrake, so it always has the newest stuff, but it's not necessarily stable.

Will the kernel rpms found under cooker automatically edit lilo for me and everything?

I downloaded 2.6.0-test5 rpm from one of the Mandrake mirrors awhile back, but they don't seem to have any 2.6.0 rpms now?

To answer your question, the rpm would put an entry in your lilo.conf file for you. And I think it even runs lilo.

I just tried using the current 2.6 rpm, had some kind of error that stopped it from installing. So I tried this file: ftp://mirrors.usc.edu/pub/linux/dist...-1mdk.i586.rpm

So far as I can tell it has installed, the thing is it isn't booting with that kernel. I need that kernel so I can use my Prism54 wireless card.

Did you run lilo after installing the rpm? I'm not sure if that is necessary or not. Also it will just give you a number in the lilo boot screen like 2-4-23-0rc5 or something like that.

What do you mean run lilo? I restarted and got lilo, I have a dual boot system. I didn't see any 2.2.23 options.

At command prompt as root type lilo. That should give you another option in lilo for the new kernel.

You may need to reinstall (or update) the RPM and then go to a shell and type 'lilo' as root *before* you reboot. Once you have rebooted without running lilo, I think you lose the opportunity to have it update your boot menu.

ok, one problem, I don't know how to uninstall it. I checked the Package management.

In case you can't tell, I am a newbie. I have been trying to get my network working with Linux before I really learn how to use it. Because my main reason for trying linux is for my web developement. If I don't have internet, it is kind of pointless to use linux for it.

If you open a terminal session and type a command followed by "--help" (without the quotes), most of them will list the options. Or, typing "man command" where you replace the word command with the actual command you are looking for help on, you will get a complete manual on the command (try typing "man rpm" without the quotes).

RPM has an option to uninstall ... but I didn't say to uninstall anything. You can reinstall on top of an existing installed RPM (you may have to use the --force switch), or you can "update" an RPM installation. Use either the --help switch or the man rpm command to read up on how to do one or the other of these.

I could just tell you exactly what to type .. but like you said you are a noobie and the only way for a noobie to become self-sufficient is to work your way through things like this.

Good luck.
