I updated to the new kernel k-deflt-2.4.16-22.i386.rpm using
rpm -Uvh as per the instructions in
I copied vmlinuz and initrd to vmlinuz.old and initrd.old
Modified lilo.config to include vmlinuz.old. The problem
is the directory /lib/modules/2.4.10-4GB has been erased
during the update. I do not think this is correct because
no I lost all the modules for the old kernel (2.4.10-4GB).
I have not tried to use the old kernel (new one works great)
but have a feeling that it would not work because of missing
modules. Can anyone tell me if this is a bug or am I missing
something about modules?
