Upgrading your system becomes a big hassle if you have built
your own kernel. And it is easily fixed, just allow for the
option of not installing the new kernel when doing an
upgrade.

Comment 1 David Lawrence 1998-12-28 23:13:59 UTC
Thank you for your suggestion. We have noted it and will consider for
the next release.

Comment 2 Aleksey Nogin 1998-12-29 05:44:59 UTC
If you remove the kernel RPM after compiling your own kernel, upgrade
would not install a new kernel.
