Hi! First of all, i´m not English speaker, so, sorry for the posible great mistakes made during my post.
Second, i consider myself a newbie trying to get out of the label :-).
Third, i´m a Gentoo user, giving it a try to Vector: it´s awesome, it´s a great job, congs to the developers!!
Fourth: In gento, when i changed something in the kernel configuration, i just need to do:
make && make modules_install
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /(wherever kernel image was ready to boot)
I did the same in Vector, yes, i know it has all you need to keep an old system like mine (Pentium III 1Ghz, 288 mb ram, Riva TNT2 model 64 32 mb, Mb Soyo 6vba-133) working on the fly, but i was intended to do some "fine tunes" to the system, for example, changing the processor type (it was detected wrong) to my pentium III. I did so, did what i used to do to boot the new kernel, but there are things that don´t work anymore. I get some "invalid module format" errors, and fuse refused (kinda redundance!) to load. I think that recompiling a kernel in Vector has some more things to do than just booting the new image. I´m not changing my kernel, not upgrading, just want to know what are the commands to enter my kernel, change what i need to change, recompile, and boot the new one without "invalid module format" errors, making imposible even install the NVIDIA drivers.
P.D.: when copying the new kernel image, i just name it "kernel", and point lilo to kernel, instead of vmlinuz. But after the wrong boot, obviously trying to boot the old vmlinuz, doesn´t work. If i try to boot the old kernel, what should i do?
Sorry for bothering you, thanks in advance for your attention!!
