I downloaded the 2.4 install CD last night, and in lieu of studying for my French final, I decided to mess around with it a bit. I followed Dapper Dan's wonderful how-to, and read the official how-to handbook on the CRUX website. I went through everything, and it all seemed like it was going great. Then, right after the kernel compiled, BAM, screen goes black. I'm not quite sure what happened, but I may have activated the wrong video drivers? It's OK though, I saw a bunch of things flash by during the compilation (bluetooth, wireless) that I don't need for my desktop, so I'm going to go try to reinstall/recompile the kernel. Can I recompile the kernel without reinstalling? or do I have to start from square one? I'll probably just start over, I sure did get one hell of a sense of excitement seeing all that stuff fly by on the screen. Round two after dinner!
