o h dear, as I feared...

One instruction that I get from a forum is that you can use grub to test out the kernel ? using

savedefault --default=0 --once
after you have successfully recompiled using "make install" as the last step of the compilation. It is supposed to make the new kernel image the main kernel to boot just 1 times after reboot to see if it works.

do you know anything similar falko ? I would love to try the "lilo" way, but since my recompiling gave some errors (not just the boot problem, but the dependencies of some modules as shown) I got a bit of a cold feet. Will those dependancies be a problem ?
