44.6.2. Itanium Systems

download PDF
Itanium systems use ELILO as the boot loader, which uses /boot/efi/EFI/redhat/elilo.conf as the configuration file. Confirm that this file contains an image section with the same version as the kernel package just installed:
prompt timeout=50 default=old  image=vmlinuz-2.6.9-5.EL
	 initrd=initrd-2.6.9-5.EL.img         read-only
	 append="root=LABEL=/" image=vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.906_EL
	 initrd=initrd-2.6.9-1.906.img         read-only
Notice that the default is not set to the new kernel. To configure ELILO to boot the new kernel, change the value of the default variable to the value of the label for the image section that contains the new kernel.
Begin testing the new kernel by rebooting the computer and watching the messages to ensure that the hardware is detected properly.
