Thx for sharing, didnt know about it.

This morning the zen update arrived and I still see the kernel in / boot !?
I misunderstood it, or in that link it says that the kernel will no longer be installed in / boot?
Ector
Cheers

The kernel packages now supply the images (vmlinuz) under /usr/lib/modules/${kernel_version}/ and the mkinitcpio package has a hook that copies the image over to /boot
