Ok, it's learning time again.
Here's the list of kernel & modules from the a series
kernel-generic-2.6.2..> 24-May-2007 20:21 2.0M
kernel-generic-smp-2..> 24-May-2007 20:04 2.2M
kernel-huge-126.96.36.199..> 24-May-2007 20:26 4.2M
kernel-huge-smp-2.6...> 28-May-2007 18:20 4.5M
kernel-modules-2.6.2..> 24-May-2007 20:24 14M
kernel-modules-smp-2..> 24-May-2007 20:07 15M
there's is four kernels and two sets of modules
Here is what I thought was correct.
The two generic kernels require their correct modules and I must also install the initrd using the correct modules.
Here is what I am not sure about.
If I use either of the huge kernel then I don't even have to install any modules at all ? Everything is built in like the kitchen sink as Pat puts it.
I've always installed modules no matter which kernel I use even though they are built in as the huge kerenls are. Maybe that the reason I was having problems.
