kernel boot option

Recommended Posts

After updating Mandriva 2008.1 I have these boot options in grub:

 

title linux
kernel (hd0,5)/boot/vmlinuz BOOT_IMAGE=linux root=UUID=78e4d88e-adba-44e8-a08f-18e818d6bae5 resume=/dev/hda8 splash=silent vga=788
initrd (hd0,5)/boot/initrd.img

title desktop586 2.6.24.4-1mnb
kernel (hd0,5)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24.4-desktop586-1mnb BOOT_IMAGE=desktop586_2.6.24.4-1mnb root=UUID=78e4d88e-adba-44e8-a08f-18e818d6bae5 resume=/dev/hda8 splash=silent vga=788
initrd (hd0,5)/boot/initrd-2.6.24.4-desktop586-1mnb.img

title desktop586 2.6.24.5-2mnb
kernel (hd0,5)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24.5-desktop586-2mnb BOOT_IMAGE=desktop586_2.6.24.5-2mnb root=UUID=78e4d88e-adba-44e8-a08f-18e818d6bae5 resume=/dev/hda8 splash=silent vga=788
initrd (hd0,5)/boot/initrd-2.6.24.5-desktop586-2mnb.img

 

What is mnb kernel and what option should I use ?

 

Thanks.

From here: Newsletter128

Mandriva recently formed a significant technical partnership with the Japanese distributor Turbolinux. The joint development effort that resulted from this partnership is known as Manbo Labs. It involves engineers from Mandriva and Turbolinux working together on maintaining the core components of the distributions, with the resulting packages shared between both products. Core packages such as the kernel and glibc are now maintained by this joint project, with the results already integrated into Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring. You can spot the packages now developed by Manbo Labs in Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring as their names have the suffix 'mnb' rather than the usual 'mdv'.

I would suggest using the latest kernel version- 2.6.24.5-2mnb.

The files vmlinuz, initd.img, System.map, config and kernel.h in /boot are usually shortcuts to the most recently installed kernel versions of those files. This means that, after installing a new kernel, starting the first entry is the same as starting the last one.
