Hi all

I just update a RH9 server to CentOS 3.6 using this guide:
http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?t=24675&highlight=upgrade+kernel

Everything looks OK except the kernel, I use rpm to remove kernel and run again:
Code:
[email protected] [/boot]# yum update
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: CentOS-3 - Addons
Server: CentOS-3 - Base
Server: CentOS-3 - Extras
Server: CentOS-3 - Updates
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
Resolving dependencies
Dependencies resolved
I will do the following:
[install: kernel-smp 2.4.21-37.EL.i686]
[install: kernel 2.4.21-37.EL.i686]
Is this ok [y/N]: y
Running test transaction:
Test transaction complete, Success!
kernel 100 % done 1/2
stdin: is not a tty

No module ft3xx found for kernel 2.4.21-37.EL, aborting.

Kernel Updated/Installed, checking for bootloader
Grub found - making this kernel the default
Installed:  kernel-smp 2.4.21-37.EL.i686 kernel 2.4.21-37.EL.i686
Transaction(s) Complete
The grub.conf is not modified at all. I have a "No module ft3xx found for kernel 2.4.21-37.EL, aborting." error here,
also I check the /boot and find out there is no initrd-2.4.XXX-smp.img file for the new kernel,
I tried "mkinitrd" to make one but still got "No module ft3xx found for kernel 2.4.21-37.EL, aborting."

What else can I do to fix this?

Go on, have a guess
This isn't really appropriate for these forums as it has nothing to do with cPanel. I'd suggest that you seek help either on a server admin resource forum or from someone who has done such upgrades in the past.

It would be a much smoother ride under such circumstances to backup user data using cPanel backup and then wipe the OS and install it afresh, otherwise you could continue having problems further down the line with the mixed nature of the OS installed.
