Description kes-kes 2012-04-30 07:20:11 UTC
if you build and trying to install kernel
make installkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_CONF
and occasionally server reboot occour. it is not start up =(

Allow installkernel to be the atomic action. To avoid lost connection to server if server reboot occour during install process.


for example install kernel to some directory and as last action do:
mv /boot/kernel /boot/kernel.old
mv /boot/kernel.new /boot/kernel
How-To-Repeat: when doing `make installkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_CONF` press reset button
