Hi friends,

I'd like to update a linux kernel in a remote xen virtual machine but
met a problem.

The currently working kernel in that xen VM is linux-, the
local version is "-xen".

I added one module, several kernel hacking options, and change the local
version to "-mine". After recompiling, I set this "-mine" kernel as my
default one in /boot/grub/menu.lst.

But the remote xen VM always boots with the original "-xen" kernel,
ignoring the "default" setting in the menu.lst. (I have not yet the
graphic access to the VM and host). Also I can not "modprobe" the module
I added.

So, I don't know what's wrong. Is there any difference in updating
kernels in VM? Or is there any general setting to set which kernels a VM
can boot with?

Thank you so much.

BTW, when doing kernel recompiling, I did

#make menuconfig
#make clean
#make modules_install install

At this point,

were generated and copied to /boot automatically, but no
initrd- I had to use "mkinitrd" to generate it.Also,
the "-mine" entry in the menu.lst need to be added manually. 

Thank you again.
