Tim I just looked at the new 85 kernel and there is no such thing as
so what did you mean?
By the way I did copy with dd the entire F7 from my old to new IDE
hard drive. It would not boot. It was not a grub problem. It was a
kernel panic because initrd was wrong and perhaps the kernel was wrong
IF you need to change that.
To get it working I had to do a little upgrade to the copied f7 with
the f7 DVD. It completed fast and then I could boot to this copy.
So I am not going to do that again.
