How to edit grub.conf file?


I am using SuSe 9.0 and have compiled a new kernel but need to tell the loader, grub, to load it. There is nothing "edit-able" in the grub.conf file to tell it to load my new kernel.

How do I tell the boot loader, grub, to load my new kernel?

SuSE uses grub, not lilo as the boot loader.

Help!!

What do you mean by nothing editable? Did you run make install? Post your grub.conf file.

There should be something like this here:
Code:
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-8)
        root (hd0,1)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.20-8 ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi
        initrd /initrd-2.4.20-8.img
Add similar code for your new kernel. Make sure the files /vmlinuz-<kernel version> and /initrd-<kernel version> exist. Also make sure you have System.map-<kernel version> in the same directory.
