Hello All,

I recently upgraded kernel on my server with
up2date --nox -f kernel
The kernel seems to be upgraded and also an entry has been added in /etc/grub.conf, after the reboot when i checked
uname -r it still shows the older version of the kernel and even WHM show me the warning "Insecure Kernel"

Help Me!!


Thank You,

Check GRUB conf look for (default=1) it should be 0 to load the last installed kernel

# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file

# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda7
# initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
default=1
timeout=10

Upgrading the kernel

Thanks Angel78, whoever you are...
Your information ended a long search about this part of the kernel upgrade... after editing the grub.conf file as you suggested, BINGO... it worked...
