When I upgraded Slackware 11.0 to 12.0 (following Robby Workman's Changes_and_Hints.txt
and a few other documents) the default kernel turned out to be huge-smp-220.127.116.11
and I'd like to change to generic-18.104.22.168
because there are notes here and there that third-party software might not want to work with the huge kernel (well, VMware doesn't want to).
Looking at the /boot directory, there are these files:
README.initrd -> /usr/doc/mkinitrd-1.1.3/README.initrd
System.map -> System.map-huge-smp-22.214.171.124-smp
config -> config-huge-smp-126.96.36.199-smp
vmlinuz -> vmlinuz-huge-smp-188.8.131.52-smp
like I could just change the links, run lilo
, and maybe be good to go; i.e., relink System.map, config,
Before I screw the thing up beyond redemption, is that reasonable or do I have to do something else (like initrd)?
