Re: kernel 2.4

Hello,

As you are upgrading from linux 2.2.16, I guess your kernel utilities are too old.

I would suggest you upgrade them to more recent values before going on with 2.4.

For more information, look at :

http://www.linuxhq.com/kernel/v2.4/changes.html


In the utilities listed on that site, I recommand you to upgrade :

* modutils
* util-linux

Good luck.

Kodjo
