Hi Richard, sorry I am a bit slow with Linux :) can you say where to do the
ls -l and uname -a? Just need a bit of clarification on how to check it is
By the way, I DID notice a bit of jumping cursor behaviour after the install
on a couple of XOs. The 4-finger salute helped a lot. Too early to make any
conclusions, as maybe it wasn't installed properly.

nod. There's a lot of noise when you do the copy. A quick ls -l to
verify that the bzImage symlink now points at your new kernel can be
used if you have doubts. And then uname -a when you reboot to verify
the commit ID matches what you think you installed. Always a good
check. I've installed the wrong .rpm a few times.
