AFAIK (and have read), that is the correct method. I used the
instructions found on Stefan Jeglinski's site <> to
successfully build and upgrade my kernel from 2.2.15->2.2.17 benh
special->2.2.18. Of course, it took me several tries to get it right,
lol. Oh, those crazy kids and their symbolic links!

I don't have your original post, nor is my Mac (PPC9500 w/ PowerLogix G3
card) available, so I cannot comment further.

Good luck.

i don't have a /boot partition, so i can't just have it point to
(the /boot partition). when you recompile the kernel, where does it go?
the way i have BootX working, is that i have a "Linux Kernels" folder
of my MacOS system folder, so that when i recompile a kernel (which i
havn't been able to do correctly, but i digress...), i have to mount my
partition that holds MacOS, and do a cp to copy the linux kernel to my
"Linux Kernels" folder, inside of my System folder. i'm not sure if i'm
cp-ing the right thing though... would you happen to know? thanks.


if i were to reformat, and make a /boot, does that make it easier to
out a newly compiled kernel? thanks again.
