Re: [K12OSN] Memory and K12LTSP kernel ?



But in this situation, there's *no* difference in minor sub-rev. You're
going from a kernel and modules compiled *one* way to a new bigmem kernel,
both with the same version number. Hence the modules will get overwritten
under the running kernel, which is why I suggested the cautious approach.
Mind you, some people would just re-install . . .


Doing a quick rpm -qpl, it appears that different directories are used for each
of the kernels (up, smp, bigmem). A kernel upgrade (rpm -hUv) should be just fine:
