    just a quick question


    Hi, first off let me say thanks to all who make this site happen. It has really helped me alot here lately. Anyways, when I recompile a new kernel I have to put System.map in the boot directory. Do I just overwrite the old one or rename it? I still want to boot the old kernel when I am done. Thanks in advance.

    You really don't need the System.map unless you're going to debug the kernel, so put it wherever you want.

    If you have a 2.6 kernel, you don't need to worry about System.map at all, since it uses an build-in kernel debugger that doesn't need System.map

    Good luck

    When installing a new kernel it is wise to back up everything you are going to change!
