    CentOS: Error installing lastest kernel 3.7.4


    Hello. I'm currently running CentOS 6.3 with the Kernel: 2.6.32-279.e16.x86_64. I am using VMware vSphere 5.0.0. I have unpacked the kernel file and started the installation process. Near the end, it shows the error:

    I used this tutorial: www dot tecmint dot com/kernel-3-5-released-install-compile-in-redhat-centos-and-fedora/
    When I try the "uname -r" command, I still have the old kernel.
    Does anyone know of a fix? Seen anything like this before?

    I'm going to guess that you're not booting into the new kernel. Can you post the contents of your /boot/grub/grub.cfg file ?

    Meton_magis,

    Thank you for the response! I feel silly about that easy configuration fix. I modified the 'grub.conf' file and set the "default=0" instead of 1. The new kernel was listed but was still loading the old kernel. Success!
