CentOS 4.5 Kernel ??

Post by centos_system » 2007/06/08 16:26:58

I am getting several ELs when executing "rpm -qa kernel|sort", e.g. 2.6.9-42.EL, 2.6.9-42.0.3.EL, 2.6.9-5.EL.
It is 32-bit CentOS 4.5. Can you please tell what is the actual Kernel I have?
Thanks.

You have kernels 2.6.9-42, 2.6.9-42.0.3, and 2.6.9-5.
run 'uname -a' to see which one you are currently running.
You change the default kernel by editing /boot/grub/grub.conf.
The value of 'DEFAULT' determins which kernel boots.
Numbering starts at 0.
