Re: kernel's

Shalom,

Names are not deceiving in this case.

Kernel parameters and settings are kept in the /stand/system file. /stand/build is where the kernel is built and eventually moved to production.

Your system boots off /stand/vmunix

You can boot off any kernel you want in /stand and keep as many of them as will fit.

Generally, I keep vmunix and vmunix.prev so I have a backout kernel in case of OS troubles after a major patch set.

Re: kernel's

HI..

go to the /stand dir and do ll vmunix*

This will show you the number of kernels you have on the system.

/stand/vmunix is the current kernel of your system.

from OS no difference in kernel. Itanium/PA comes at the time of booting :)
