Woody persists in booting stock kernel?

Postby matthijs » 2005-04-01 11:35

Installed a Woody system (using the LordSutch.com ' network' cd installer, 2.2.20-idepci stock kernel), used make-kpkg and then dpkg to compile and install new kernel as usual, updated and ran LILO, no problems, but:

on reboot the system will load the old kernel again!

My lilo.conf image is set to /vmlinuz, a symlink to my NEW kernel image! How is it possible that the system will load the old kernel? I've used this EXACT SAME METHOD many times before to update kernels and never had this problem!

Any help would be much appreciated!

Cheers.

Could you post your lilo.conf?

I tried another way of getting the system to boot the new kernel: doing it the non-debian-specific way, i.e. just Makeing a bzImage manually and then putting the image and System.map in my /boot directory, hence the current lilo.conf:

washington:/home/matthijs# cat /etc/lilo.conf
lba32
boot=/dev/hda1
root=/dev/hda1
install=/boot/boot.b
map=/boot/System.map-2.4.18
vga=normal
delay=20
default=Linux
image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18
label=Linux
read-only
washington:/home/matthijs# lilo
Added Linux *

This also boots the old 2.2.20-idepci kernel.

Update: I began to suspect that maybe I had stupidly built the kernel using some old config file, but after compiling a new one I'm sure this isn't what's going on... :-)
