Making 100% sure i can boot into old and new kernel
Im going to try and compile and run the 2.6.10 kernel some time today. Im a bit puzzled at how i can definitely boot into the old kernel using lilo.
From what I have read before I rename the old vmlinuz, Systemmap and config to e.g. vmlinuz.old etc and change my lilo.conf. Am i right in saying the old bzimage will be in vmlinuz.old?
So changing lilo.conf too:
image = /boot/vmlinuz.old
Would boot back into the old kernel?
The thing that puzzles me is how does it know which Systemmap and config to use?
