I'm new to the list (and gentoo) but not to linux.
I just started with gentoo, had to use the 2004.2 image since 2004.3 crashed
at installtime on my machine (thinkpad 600X)...
I used stage 2. Since then I succesfully installed a lot of apps like KDE and
such, but my kernel is still a selfmade 2.4 one. Now I need to get my
wireless cards working but I'd rather upgrade the kernel first for fear of
doing things twice (or wrong) due to the changed pcmcia drivers.
I think I correctly upgraded 2004.2 to 2004.3 but how do I check that to make
sure? The machine did not do anything spectacular when I made that change,
is that expected behaviour ? Now for the fullfillment of the transition to
2004.3 I need a kernel 2.6, right ? Can someone point me to the docs that
detail that step cause I could not find that very well.
Or do I just somehow get the sources and start compiling ?
How do I make sure I retain my current kernel as a second boot option if the
2.6 kernel will not boot ?
Thanks in advance,
