Itanium systems use ELILO as the boot loader, which uses
/boot/efi/EFI/redhat/elilo.conf as the configuration file. Confirm that this file contains an
image section with the same version as the
kernel package just installed:
prompt timeout=50 default=old image=vmlinuz-2.6.9-5.EL
Notice that the default is not set to the new kernel. To configure ELILO to boot the new kernel, change the value of the
default variable to the value of the
label for the
image section that contains the new kernel.
Begin testing the new kernel by rebooting the computer and watching the messages to ensure that the hardware is detected properly.
