DL 360 Server (1st Generation) and Red Hat EL 4

Hello,

I have 1st generation DL 360 server on which I have installed Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.
The system worked alright before I updated to latest Red Hat Linux Packages from red hat site.
This created a new latest kernel 2.6.9-42.0.3.EL. But the system did not boot from this kernel.
Lucky enough the old kernel (2.6.9-5.EL)was still present for me to boot my system.
I suppose its the problem with the drivers??
I hope someone would have encontered this problem......please let me know how i can fix this and get the new kernel all set!!

Thank you,
AJ.

Hi AJ

At what part does the system hang? Perhaps the OS did not run depmod and mkinitrd to make the ramdisk for the new kernel, if so, try the following..

depmod -a
mkinitrd -f -v initrd-2.6.9-5.EL.img 2.6.9-5.EL
lilo -v (if you have lilo as your bootloader and not grub)

Regards,
Mark.
