(Fwd) What is System.map for ?
as a newbie to linux, I have a question about the System.map file.
I have build a custom kernel.deb package and successfully installed
it. The package also installed a System.map file. Obviously this file
has some symbol to memaddress infos and is different in a kernel with
different .config file.
I just wonder why the map option is a systemwide option in lilo. So
if I boot the previous kernel, the wrong map gets loaded.
Is this correct ?
