[TriLUG] Kernel version / wlan question
Tue, 27 Nov 2001 14:23:42 -0500
I am setting up a Toshiba Tecra 8000 with Red Hat 7.1 . The kernel version
I am trying to install the wlan project to support a Linksys wireless nic,
and the project has RPM's for
either 2.4.2 or 2.4.9 for Red Hat 7.1. So do I:
a.) ignore RPM error and go ahead and install either the wlan-2.4.2 or the
wlan2.4.9 rpm? if so, which?
b.) Upgrade to 7.2 and hope that the kernel is one of the ones that there is
a wlan RPM for?
c.) get jiggy with it and attempt to upgrade just the kernel (is that
possible?). If you suggest this then I'm in for a ride! :-0
I am a NOVICE linux user, basically don't know sh^t, but trying to learn. So
what would you suggest.
Also, when I installed this machine I opted for the graphical login. I
there a way to shut down X to a text login?
Last thing. command to type that tells me which kernel I am running?
Thanks in advance,
