Re: [linux-lvm] Kernel 2.4.x with LVM beta 6 on Sun E450?

if you have a decent display (or network access) see what 
"make xconfig" does for you.  it may be a curses/ncurses
version issue (was for me).  by the time you're done cursing
[so to speak] you'd be better off in X11.  if you just want
to get the thing working then:

	take your pre3 .config and move it to /usr/src (i.e., "..").
	blow off /usr/src/linux-2.4.2-pre3.
	re-extract 2.4.2 into, say, linux-2.4.2.
	cp ../config ./.config;
	make oldconfig;

this will re-use the old (assumedly working) .config from 2.4.3-pre3
w/ questions about anything new it doesn't have answers for.  you
can use this method to migrate up versions w/o having to wander 
through the entire process each time.
