modules problem after upgrading redhat 8.0 kernel with rpm
 
Hi,

I installed the new kernel 2.4.20-20.8 with rpm. I reboot and the modules can't be loaded because it tries to find the old modules 2.4.18-xxxx.
I guess their is a missing link somewhere ... and I'm surprised the rpm doesn't take care of that.
I also noticed that uname -a gives me the old version 2.4.18. But in my /boot folder I only have 2.4.20 files.

Thanks for your help

"I also noticed that uname -a gives me the old version 2.4.18."
You are booting kernel 2.4.18 in /boot.

"I guess their is a missing link somewhere"
The directory /lib/modules/2.4.18 does not exist.

"I'm surprised the rpm doesn't take care of that."
The rpm does not change your bootloader to boot the new kernel. You have to do that yourself. Before you do make sure that the new kernel is installed in both /boot and /lib/modules.
