This is my first time posting to this list. If I manage to blatantly
disrespect some "official mailing list rule", I apologize in advance. =]
My question is this: Back in the day of the 2.2.16 kernel, pre-compiled
kernels could be downloaded through benh's ppc linux page. I am now noticing
the lack of pre-compiled 2.4 kernels anywhere on the internet. Do they
I've been using the suse kernels with no problems. The 2.2.18 rpm was a
breeze, the 2.4.x gave me module problems until I worked out the new
names given to some kernels (ppp/dmasound...) and changed
/etc/modules.conf accordingly. Also, with the 2.4.x you need the new
modultils and the new ppp, both available with the kernels on the suse site.
Also, I noticed that after installing the new modultils, if you go to
use YaST2, it will try to install the old one again and bugger things up
without letting you know it is going to do it. I went to install snes9x
and ended up having a bastard version of modutils installed along with it.
