    New kernel won't install


    Hi there. I just configured a new kernel for my Slackware box and built it. It's a 2.6.14.2 kernel, and I've been using a 2.6.9 and had a 2.4.26 sitting around. However,
    Code:
    $ make install
      CHK     include/linux/version.h
      CHK     include/linux/compile.h
    dnsdomainname: Unknown host
      CHK     usr/initramfs_list
    Kernel: arch/i386/boot/bzImage is ready  (#2)
    sh /usr/src/linux-2.6.14.2/arch/i386/boot/install.sh 2.6.14.2 arch/i386/boot/bzImage System.map "/boot"
    Added Linux_2.6.9 *
    Added Linux_2.4.26
    which is no good. Why doesn't this install the new kernel?

    no idea

    but I do it manually by

    cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/2.6.14.2

    or whatever

    then hand editing the /etc/lilo.conf for the new kernel image
    then lilo -v after

    it seems you built the kernel fine though so theres no need to help you there

    Thanks, that sorted it out. I'm kind of embarassed that I didn't work that out on my own, but it was a learning experience.
