Question


i have been able to recompile and upgrade my kernel in slackware 7.1 with no problems but, now i am playing with redhat 6.2. when i upgrade to 2.2.16 then reboot it still comes up with 2.2.14. it looks like it is linked some how to that 2.2.14 kernel. when i do a uname -a it still says 2.2.15. any ideas.

yes i did, i cp'ed vmlinuz to backup. edited the lilo.conf and ran lilo. this has to be something with redhat, because i've upgraded the kernel in turbolinux, openlinux and slackware.

Lightbulb i figured it out

i was copying the bzImage to the vmlinuz, but the lilo.conf has image = /boot/vmlinuz-2.2.14. after i edited it to image = /boot/vmlinuz it worked fine. what a bonehead!
