through the grub i am selecting the new kernel.
obviously those are on seperate partitions. I am sending you the details of the command mentioned.
# sudo parted -l
Model: ATA ST3250310AS (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 250GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos
Number Start End Size Type File system Flags
1 32.3kB 21.0GB 21.0GB primary fat32 boot, lba
2 21.0GB 126GB 105GB extended lba
11 21.0GB 21.8GB 822MB logical ext3
10 27.4GB 37.0GB 9640MB logical ext2
8 37.0GB 52.0GB 15.0GB logical ext3
9 52.0GB 52.4GB 387MB logical linux-swap(v1)
5 52.4GB 83.9GB 31.5GB logical fat32
6 83.9GB 115GB 31.5GB logical ntfs
7 115GB 126GB 10.5GB logical ext3
3 126GB 157GB 31.5GB primary ntfs
4 157GB 250GB 92.7GB primary ntfs
I even doubt if there is any problem with my compilation. Initially I did
1. make defconfig (selecting a default configuration)
3. make modules_install
4. make install
Later i just restarted the system. Is this correct?
