Gentoo Kernel upgraded from 2.4.20r5 to 2.4.20r6????
When I issued the commad:
emerge -u world
My kernel was upgraded form 2.4.20-gentoo-r5 to r6. Among other things.
This is what it said just befoe finishing?
* After installing a new kernel of any version, it is important
* that you have the appropriate /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-X.Y
* created (X.Y is the first 2 parts of your new kernel version)
I show a kernel-2.4 and a kernel-2.5 in /etc/modules.autoload.d/
Scanning Configuration files...
The following is the list of files which need updating, each
configuration file is followed by a list of possible replacement files.
Please select a file to edit by entering the corresponding number.
(-1 to exit) (-3 to auto merge all remaining files)
(-5 to auto-merge AND not use 'mv -i'): -3
Replacing /etc/init.d/hdparm with /etc/init.d/._cfg0000_hdparm
mv: overwrite `/etc/init.d/hdparm'? y
Replacing /etc/kernels/genkernel with /etc/kernels/._cfg0000_genkernel
mv: overwrite `/etc/kernels/genkernel'? y
Exiting: Nothing left to do; exiting. :)
If I do a "uname -a", it shows that I'm still running 2.4.20-gentoo-r5.
Did I do the right thing after upgradeing or do I need to reboot as well?
Is there some type of Standard Operating Proceedure after doing an "emerge sync" ,"emerge -u world" and/or right after downloading anytype of application..I.E. ethereal, Gaim, ect..ect.. that I should be following for best practices?
Can I download other applications (tar.gz's) that aren't included in the portage tree without effecting Gentoo in anyway.
