What is System.map for?


I have upgraded the kernel. Someone tells me I didn't have to copy System.map to /boot. I wonder if it's true. What is System.map for?

Thanks.

As its name says Syatem.map is the map of system (kernel). It's used by developers (and sometimes to report bugs). There is a high chance you'll never need to think about this file.
