wiki_admin added note of patch disk needing the kernel config package
Line 2: Line 2:
  
 You have the option of installing the patch disk, which should patch your installation up to patch level 2a. This can patch the kernel to 2.1c as well, which is why you may find references to 2.1c being the “ultimate” version of AMIX. In actuality, 2.1p2a is the latest version you can install... and you do that with the patch disk. You'll probably want to have this installed to minimize running into issues. You have the option of installing the patch disk, which should patch your installation up to patch level 2a.
