Suggestion for allowing multiple kernels of the same version
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:48 EDT
We have found a simple mechanism for maintaining multiple
kernels of the same version on a system through a simple
Say for example, that you have three kernels built from the
2.0.36 source code, but configured differently. I will call
them 2.0.36.noapm, 2.0.36.apm and 2.0.36.generic. By using
the append keyword in lilo.conf and a simple script, you can
then have the rc.sysinit script create the appropriate
preferred link, create a link from /boot/vmlinuz to the
current kernel or anything else that you have to do that is
I will send the script that we use and the cooresponding
lilo.conf via e-mail.
Thank you for the suggestion. It has been noted and will be considered
for upcoming releases.
