    I closely followed copykern and the Cachecard installation instructions but I am still getting the GSOD after DirecTV upgraded my SAT-T60 to 3.5b.
    Questions:
    1) What .iso image should I download and what procedure should I follow to change my swap space?
    2) What is the recommended swap size when I have a 250GB drive and a 512MB Cachecard.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    125MB without cache card - have no idea how the card affects this if at all. Did you issue mountcd command before running copykern? If not, copykern does not really run like it should.

    Thanks for the reply. Yes I did run mountcd. copykern completed with no errors.
    Should I run copykern again with the -s option, or is there another utility that would let me change the SWAP size?

    Lack of swap doesn't cause a GSOD, IME.

    Were you getting a GSOD before the upgrade? If so, then it's being caused by corruption that you have copied from your previous drive.

    Thanks, but I did not copy anything from my previous drive - I used Instant Cake on a brand new drive. That is why this is so frustrating.
    Is there a way I can tell if the LBA48 kernal has been copied over properly when it is hooked up to my PC?

    Yes, mount the /var paritition (9) under linux and check the kernel log in /log. There will be a line similar to the following that tells you the kernel version:-
    Code:
    Jan 1 00:00:16 (none) kernel: Linux version 2.1.24-TiVo-2.5 (millert@xerxes.courtesan.com) (gcc version 2.8.1) #14 Wed Oct 8 12:06:25 MDT 2003 
    We don't have this model of TiVo in the UK, so I'm not sure what kernel you *should* have, but if you can find out what you *do* have that will be a start :)
