Running slackware 14 current can not upgrade kernel.


Running slackware current 32 bit, when I do a slackpkg upgrade-all it shows that kernel 3.7 loads & installs but when I do a uname -a the kernel shows to be 3.2.29-smp. It never asks for me to run lilo like it did on my other 64 bit machine. I have upgraded 2 times and had the same problem each time. Running lilo changes nothing. If have a solution please reply.

Check if it can be found in /boot _and_ /lib/modules. If so, just update lilo/grub/whatever-you-use to use the new kernel

I looked in both /boot and in /lib/modules and there is no info of any kind to any kernel except the 3-2-29, for some reason the newer 3-7 kernel is not being installed. When I look at my 64 bit machine using current it only has kernel 3-7-1. I will try qne more update and see what develops. Thanks

I found the problem, I had blacklisted old kernel in /etc/slackpkg/blacklist. I never remember doing it but it was blacklisted.
