I have just upgraded my RH7.1 kernel from 2.4.2-2 to 2.4.14.
Everything seemed to go well, the system rebooted ok.
I made a symbolic link to my new kernel as well as the System.map.
Here is what is has me stumped.
When I boot the machine, even though I created a new kernel (vmlinuz)
as well as a new support file (System.map) I still get a message
stating that I am still running Linux 2.4.2-2.
If i go to a menu and do a uname -sr it still tells me that I am
working with Linux 2.4.2-2 Where did I go wrong. I made sure that I
changed my lilo.conf file so that image is vmlinuz, which is soft
linked to vmlinuz-2.4.14.
I did notice that whn I looked in the /etc area, the following links
are still pointing to version 2.4.2-2 stuff
kernel.h -> kernel-2.4.2
As I was typing this I ran lilo from /sbin/lilo, now the machine gets
to Loading Linux ..................
then it does nothing but reboot!
I tried using the boot disk and after it loads half way I get a
message stating Kernel Panic: No init found
any ideas on where I may have went wrong?
If it would help, I can type the steps that I used?
