upgrading kernel?...or not.
I run a modified mepis distro. I upgraded the toolchain to debian lenny. Its basically debian. But when I downloaded linux-image-2.6.26-1-486 and its headers linux-headers-2.6.26-1-common and linux-source-2.6.26 just in case.
I checked /boot to see if everything was inorder, it was.
but when I rebooted to this new kernel. it decompressed the image ok.
but after that it just hung at "loading, please wait" no HD activity.
I then compiled the source I got and the same thing resulted.
so i'm stuck with linux-image-2.6.22-1-mepis-smp
PS what i'm trying to do is get a kernel upgrade so I can use uvesafb to make my framebuffer my native widescreen.
