    That'd be because the grub.conf file is still set to use the last kernel.
    Edit it ("/boot/grub/grub.conf") and subtract 1 from the "default=1" line
    (or whatever's there). Using 'default="0"' will use the first entry in the
    list.

    What version of RedHat are you using?

    Do the following:

    rpm -q kernel

    and post the results.

    If you don't have grub.conf, is there a lilo.conf out there some where in
    your boot directory?

  7. Re: system not running newest kernel installed

    grub.conf is linked to /boot/grub/grub.conf

    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Jun 1 03:01 grub.conf -> ../boot/grub/grub.conf

    but i can not find grub.conf nor the gurb subdirectory in the /boot
    directory

    Most peculiar. Are you doing your checks as the root user? What do you
    get as a result from running this command line: locate grub.conf

    Presumably /etc/grub.conf is a broken link, then.

    Perhaps you installed the system using a separate /boot partition, and
    that partition is not currently mounted. You can look at the output
    from "fdisk -l /dev/hda" (adjust "hda" as needed) for likely candidates.
    Or, you can reboot, enter the Grub menu (press [ESC] if necessary), use
    the "c" command to get to the Grub command prompt, and then use the
    command "find /boot/grub/grub.conf" or "find grub/grub.conf" to see what
    partition(s) contain that file. Do note that Grub partition numbers
    start with 0, so "(hd0,0)" corresponds to hda1 (or sda1 on a SCSI
    system).

    Ummm..., you _are_ using Grub, not LILO, to boot, right?
