What is the maintanence and upgrade proceedure for OZ and OZ kernel? Do we normally wait for the next major release of OZ or are there regular updates to install? I see kernels in the feed. Do we normally upgrade the kernel? If update proceedures are in place can you point me in the direction of documentation on how?

Specifically, I'm hoping to address an issue with my sd card. Basically It will not detect if inserted prior to boot up. It seems like this will preclude me from installing many programs to my sd card which will cause me to run out of ram. My issue is mentioned in the below post. Thanks.

This is/was an issue with the 2.6.x kernels - you need to eject & re-insert it after boot for it to mount. I'm not sure whether it'd been fixed, is there a bug tracker number for it?

I didn't find a bug track number but did find some old forum threads on the issue without a resolution. Is there a howto on updating the kernel on OZ?

Probably no howto, you just need to install the kernel modules for the new kernel, then perform the usual flashing procedure but with just the zImage(.bin) on the card (no initrd.bin otherwise you'll overwrite the root fs too).
