what happened to amd k7 kernel?
Hi all -
This weekend I'm upgrading my desktop from 6.06 to 8.04. I've kept just my /home partition and am otherwise doing a completely fresh install of 8.04. One of the early steps in my installation process is to install the amd k7 kernel. However, looking in Synaptic, the linux-image-k7 entries all say:
"Upgrade dummy package. Can be removed"
Soooo ... Do I still use those packages to get an AMD K7 kernel, or is there some other method?
Surprisingly, I found nothing about this in searching the forum or even googling. I'd think it'd be a common question ... I mean, the hardware isn't THAT old
[FYI, this is a 32-bit install, not 64-bit. Yes, the processor is 64-bit, but I'm running it in 32-bit mode and do not care to mess with 64-bit, thanks]
