Re: Where can I find my debian kernel?
As a general rule, the _compiled_ version of your kernel, which is not
really going to be usably viewed with a text editor, can be found in
/boot, and will be symlinked in /, like so:
Can anybody tell me where I can find my debian kernel? I mean, can
someone give me the path where I can find my kernel on my newly
installed debian system? And if I can find it, is it possible to look
into it using the VI editor?
Thanks in advance,
westk[@westkent]:/home/westk:> ls -l /vmlinuz*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 2004-04-20 08:58 /vmlinuz ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 2004-02-24 12:24 /vmlinuz.old
You can download the sources, and use vi to look/edit those files, but
to "apply" those edits you'd need to compile the changes into a new
kernel and install the new kernel. That's a whole 'nother bag of fish.
