How do I make a vmlinuz symlink?
I am using kernel 2.6.11-1-generic, and it works fine on my LX164.
My problem is, I have to boot from:
4:2/vmlinuz-2.6.11-1-generic ro initrd=/initrd.img-2.6.11-1-generic
because vmlinuz still points to the old 2.4 kernel. So this:
0:2/vmlinuz ro initrd=/initrd.img /root=/dev/hda3 boots into the old one.
If I understand this correctly, vmlinuz is just a symlink that points to
the actual kernel?
Correct? So I can just redirect it to point to my new kernel? I did
some Googling, and found this. Is this syntax correct for what I need
ln -s vmlinuz-2.6.11-1-generic /boot/vmlinuz
ln -s initrd.img-2.6.11-1-generic /boot/initrd.img
Am I done after that? Or is there more stuff that needs redirecting?
And, is there an easier/automated way of doing this?
I read the thread about "link_in_boot = Yes", but was not sure if it
applied to my issue.
Thanks in advance to anyone who helps!
