    info about slackware-current


    I just wanted to warn people that if they have slackware 10.0 and uses slackware current to upgrade to 10.1 then run /sbin/lilo. The upgrade includes a kernel upgrade and if you do a kernel upgradepkg *.tgz then don't forget the /sbin/lilo or it won't boot.

    Good Luck

    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

    How did you upgrade? Are you using swaret or slapt-get?

    Just asking because those have the kernel and the lilo packages excluded for upgrading so that doesn't happen.

    I have a rsync program that syncs with slackware current.

    Oh well, you wouldn't have that problem if you've used swaret/slapt-get, unless you configure it to update the kernel and lilo packages.

    The UPGRADE.TXT file states to be sure your lilo.conf is updated before rebooting...and if you apply updates to that file, you NEED to run /sbin/lilo.

    Patrick warns against using swaret or slapt-get to upgrade Slackware versions. He spells out his method for upgrading Slack versions in the UPGRADE.txt ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar....1/UPGRADE.TXT

    Since he's "the man", I choose to heed his advice.
