Package: kernel-image-2.6.8-2-smp (2.6.8-16sarge1) [security]

Linux kernel image for version 2.6.8 on Alpha SMP.

This package contains the Linux kernel image for version 2.6.8 on the Alpha architecture with SMP support, the corresponding System.map file, and the modules built by the packager. SMP (symmetric multi-processing) is needed if you have multiple processors. It also contains scripts that try to ensure that the system is not left in a unbootable state after an update.

If you wish to update a bootdisk, or to use a bootloader to make installing and using the image easier, we suggest you install the latest fdutils (for formatting a floppy to be used as boot disk), and LILO, for a powerful bootloader. Of course, both these are optional.

Kernel image packages are generally produced using kernel-package, and it is suggested that you install that package if you wish to create a custom kernel from the sources.
