Unhappy RH8.0 Kernel upgraded from RHN but not working... :(


The redhat network alert notification tool tells me:
(Critical Information)
Your system is currently running kernel-2.4.18-14, but the newest
installed kernel is kernel-2.4.18-18.8.0. It is recommended that you
reboot at the first opportunity to test this new kernel.

But even if i reboot the machine, the kernel doesn't update.

I am using Grub and here is the conf file
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,1)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux 8.0 (2.4.18-14)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/ hde=noprobe hdf=noprobe hdg=noprobe hdh=noprobe hdi=noprobe hdj=noprobe hdk=noprobe hdl=noprobe
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-14.img
title Windows XP Pro
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1
--------------------------------------------------------------------


I was trying to change the file manually, but I couldn't find the initrd-2.4.18-18.8.0.img file (everything else are there though) in the /boot folder.

rpm -q kernel does shows that I have this version kernel installed.

Any help will be appriciated!

ooh, btw, I then tried to compile one from the source rpm, but couldn't find the final img file. I did got the bzImage file but not sure if this is the one. If so, should I rename it to initrd-2.4.18-18.8.0.img and copy to the right place ?

help please... : |

I am booting from the HD, dual op system.
Should I make a floppy disk and try to boot the new kernel from there ?

well try this change your grub.conf to this:

timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,1)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux 8.0 (2.4.18-18.8.0)
root (hd0,1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-18.8.0 ro root=LABEL=/ hde=noprobe hdf=noprobe hdg=noprobe hdh=noprobe hdi=noprobe hdj=noprobe hdk=noprobe hdl=noprobe
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-18.8.0.img
title Windows XP Pro
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1


that should work..... (looks like redhat didn't update your grub.conf)
