I am configuring an IBM T21 with RedHat 7.1.
I have a question concerning the kernel. I have compiled kernel 2.4.5
for my system. (I had to because of suspend problems.) What to do with
System.map, module-info, kernel.h files in the /boot directory???? Do I
need to change them every time I create a new kernel? Or is this not
What I did is the following.
copy the bzImage to /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.5
cp /usr/src/linux/System.map /boot/System.map-2.4.5
ln -s -f vmlinuz-2.4.5 vmlinuz
ln -s -f System.map-2.4.5 System.map
changed /etc/lilo.conf and run lilo.
It seems to work OK, but what to do if I want to switch to another
compiled kernel or an old kernel.
Can somebody explain what kernel.h, module-info, System.map do?
I can't find anything on the web about it.
