Description Daryll Strauss 1999-04-17 17:19:35 UTC
So, it looks like you're moving the Alpha kernels to /boot
instead of storing them in /. This requires changing the
boot parameters and should be clearly documented for the
upgrade. It fact it would probably be worth a screen at the
end reminding the user to make the change.

When I upgraded my system and didn't change the boot
parameters my system came up with my old kernel and during
the boot it complained a lot about the not
matching the kernel version.

I'm changing the component to installer because of the "screen
at the end" suggestion. The doco needs to be adjusted too.

Comment 2 Jay Turner 2000-02-10 19:05:59 UTC
This issue is resolved in the 6.1 installer and documentation.
