was going crazy freeing space, and somehow removed my actual kernel and modules from the hard drive. "no problem", I thought, I had kernel 3.16 installed to which I could boot. but no wl.ko, so no wireless (that I know about, anyway). and then I had a kernel panic for no apparent reason.

so, back to Windows 7, from where I again ran coLinux and attempted a repair. I was able to download the old kernel, and install it using dpkg, but I couldn't get LILO to run. booted again into 3.16, was able to run LILO before another kernel panic, and now I'm back up. whew.

Back to blog or home page
