Linux kernel

Posted on 2007-08-06

I have upgraded my kernel to a hugemem kernel and when I run rpm -q kernel I get this result:
$ rpm -q kernel

When I run uname -a I get this result:
$ uname -a
Linux host.domain_name 2.6.9-55.0.2.ELhugemem #1 SMP <date/time> 2 007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Is there something more I need to be doing with the kernel or is there a file I need to adjust to have the rpm command show the appropriate kernel version??

    Accepted Solution

    To my knowledge, this is standard RHEL behavior.  

    Your only other option is to look in /boot (ls -t so sort from most recent to oldest).
