Re: kernel update

Note it also depends on the OS version.
Some kernel parms are now dynamic and you no longer need to make a new kernel.

Of course you could use sam to decide whether a kernel is needed. And patches will automatically figure this out.

Re: kernel update

Kernel rebuilding(mk_kernel & kmupdate) require when we changing kernel parameters(manually).

You can change kernel parameters using SAM.This utility will automatically rebuild kernel with prompt.
