    I upgraded via the redhat network update to the 2.4.20-30.9 kernel they released for RH9 the other day. Only trouble is the server does not seem to be booting the 2.4.20-30.9 kernel.

    I edited the lilo.conf file and set the new 2.4.20-30.9 kernel as the default one to boot. But the system is still booting the old 2.4.20-28.9 kernel. When I upgraded to the 2.4.20-28.9 kernel I did not have this problem and setting it as default in lilo.conf seemed to be all I had to do after upgrading.

    Both cPanel and WHM report that I am still running the 2.4.20-28.9 kernel.

    Are there any logs anywhere that might tell me why it is not using the new (and default) kernel? I checked out /var/log/boot but it did not contain any info about the kernel.

    lilo -v -v

    After editing lilo, run once or two times then reboot.

    However I updated it manually :)

    yeah I did run lilo -v -v, however, I must have just been too tired at the time because when i ran it while more alert, I noticed there was an error in lilo.conf which kept it from updating. Got it sorted now. :)
