True. But I got some attention.

yesterday I hadn't gone thru what I have yet to see where it falls apart.

I have gotten bounced from lkml because a screen shot pix of a failed boot
was too big. Perhaps 18 months or so. It was big, from a 10 megapixel

No, one intermediate step in this case.

I started with 3.0.19, which was fine, took that one to 3.2.40, and that
one to 3.8.2 because I don't have anything between those here. Not exactly
a step by step.

Yes, Joanne Dow would call that a typu for sure.

Thanks Randy.
