Kernel .config?
« on: October 27, 2005, 02:46:28 am »
If I'm installing over an existing Debian installation (not wiping the hard drive)  is there anything special about your kernel .config?  Or is it a pretty standard Debian modularized kernel?

Any reason I need a keyboard/monitor on the Core during installation?  My current MythTV backend server is headless in the basement utility room.  Normally accessed via ssh when doing maintainance/installing new stuff.

Thanks,

Our kernel is 2.6.13.2 from kernel.org with most options enabled (as modules, where possible). If you install on a running Debian, you should still keep a keboard and a monitor around, just in case as Pluto will install the kernel too and if you have something "non-standard" in that machine and it doesn't boot, you'll need those (If it doesn't boot, let us know). I haven't attempted and install on top of a Debian system with the new scripts. Other stuff may also break or get replaced.
