  1. Bug#473605: do better than FATAL: Kernel too old

    Package: linux-image-686
    Severity: wishlist

    Regarding the message
    FATAL: Kernel too old

    The user at a rural mountaintop might only have such a one single
    rescue disk. Please instead allow minimal operability.

    Or at least allow him to hit CTRL ALT DEL to reboot then, instead of
    having to resort to POWER OFF, POWER ON, if there is no RESET button
    on his laptop.

    If you view this as a kernel bug, then the only way we could fix it
    is to update the kernel. Luckily we updated to 2.6 long ago, so we're
    good.
