Exclamation update to new kernel ,bootup still boot old kernel?


Hi ,

I have a pc dual boot by win2000 boot loader , which the linux that
I am using is Redhat 8 , kernel 2.4.18-14 , I have updated using the
RH up2date , then after reboot (I reboot many times)
it show a information at the Redhet Network Notification Alert that
"Your system is currently running kernel 2.4.18-14, but the newest
installed kernel is kernel 2.4.20-18.8 . It is recommended that you
reboot at the first opportunity to test this new kernel."

I have installed and checked from this update Notification tools as well
as the /boot found the new kernel is installed . But I just can't get
the new kernel to bootup . (I also looked inside the /boot/grub/grub.conf and
found some lines for the new kernel that I installed ,I don't care to make
any changes to it . Because I not sure what those line about. )

default=1
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,1)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-18.8)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-18.8 ro root=LABEL=/ hda=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.20-18.8.img
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-14)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/ hda=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-14.img
title DOS
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1


Any idea ? Thanks.


regards,
kalmen

You will have to put it into the boot loader you are actually using, the Win 2000 bootloader.

Following instructions for grub or lilo only work if you use grub or lilo.

I gave up Windows in 1999. Better check with a Windows site for Windows information, and don't expect Billy to make it easy. Why did you not choose grub?
