'Split kernel' linux on Sun's new Workstation

'Split kernel' linux on Sun's new Workstation

Post by goat tro » Fri, 13 Jun 2003 22:26:35

Sun today announced the Sun Blade 1700. The new workstation ships with
Sun's latest UltraSPARC IIIj processor - code-named RedHotChilly -
running at 3.06GHz. The system costs under $1,000 with one processor,
1GB of memory and an 80GB disk.  It comes pre-loaded with Redhat's
much vaunted 'split-kernel' linux, which apparently doubles the rate
of core stack dumps.

1. 'uname' is not updated after installing new '2.4.20' kernel??


using gentoo RC2.

I was using kernel 2.4.19.

when I did emerge 2 days ago, it downloaded a new kernel 2.4.20.

Ok, So I went to /usr/src and made a link to the new directory
and configured new kernel and build it (and modules, modules_install
as I have done zillon times before:

lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root  22  Mar  4 09:37 linux ->
drwxr-xr-x   16 root     root  840 Mar  4 09:36
drwxr-xr-x   16 root     root  840 Mar  4 10:02 linux-2.4.20-gentoo-r1

next, as usuall, I copied the newly compiled bzImage to /boot/bzImage

total 3944
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root      1485414 Mar  4 10:05 bzImage
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root      1283810 Mar  1 18:48 bzImage.old

next I rebooted. btw, I am not using lilo, but the other boot manager
I think it is called grub.

so, after I shutdown the system and boot, I select as before the file
/boot/bzImage using the command

now, when the system is up, I do 'uname' expecting it to say 2.4.20,
it is still saying 2.4.19 !

Linux mymachine.mydomain.com 2.4.19-gentoo-r10 #2 SMP Sat Feb 1
17:17:15 PST 2003 i686 Intel(R) XEON(TM) CPU 2.40GHz GenuineIntel

How could this be? is there another method to verify which kernel
I am running??
