Description Geoffrey Leach 1999-12-12 19:29:43 UTC
The documentation on making a custom kernel needs to be
updated.  In patricular, there's no mention of System.map.
The section on monolithic kernels is incorrect, as
rc.sysinit no longer has a one line call to depmod.  Rather,
the user should be advised to add append=nomodules to her
lilo.conf

Thanks for the feedback -- I'm moving this to the docs group for followup...

Comment 2 Sandra Moore 2000-02-15 19:20:59 UTC
Added corrected information to Ref Guide for next version release.
