Installing/Upgrading the Kernel

Stefan Jeglinski

These instructions apply to a -prebuilt- kernel. An alternative is to compile the kernel. The first step is of course to acquire the kernel. Examples would be 2.2.1 for LinuxPPC or the so-called Generic 07 kernel for MkLinux. The description below was accurate as of the date on this page. Links and Kernel versions do change. If a link here is broken, it is still likely to be not far off the mark. Be sure to let me know if you find a broken link or inaccuracies.
