It'd be nice to be able to switch between version on the fly, i.e. work with 3.4.2 and when you need to, go to 2.5.8. Obviously, not just these versions and not just Kindle DX. I have system images of my DXG for 2.5.5 and 2.5.8, in fact, before doing anything, I take a dump... hehehehe

I think I disclosed it for Kindle Touch or Kindle 3, when I was more active here, but: Has anyone found a quick way to switch between versions?
The root of the filesystem tree is firmly anchored in the kernek once it is up and running - -
So "Switch on the Fly" - - Not without rebooting.
Using kexec might be one path to explore (there has been some work done here on a kexec enabled kernel).

Another possibility (not tried here that I know of) is to support more than one guest system under Linux-VServer(.org) and then switch the pariperals between the various guest instances.

But your going to either run out of RAM or have to enable swap so the instances not in use have somewhere to go.
