INSTALLKERNEL(8)                     System Manager's Manual                     INSTALLKERNEL(8)

NAME
       installkernel - install a new kernel image

SYNOPSIS
       installkernel version zImage System.map [directory]

DESCRIPTION
       installkernel  installs a new kernel image onto the system from the Linux source tree.  It
       is called by the Linux kernel makefiles when make install is invoked there.

       The new kernel is  installed  into  {directory}/vmlinuz-{version}.   If  a  symbolic  link
       {directory}/vmlinuz  already  exists,  it  is  refreshed  by  making  a  link from {direcā€
       tory}/vmlinuz to the new kernel, and the  previously  installed  kernel  is  available  as
       {directory}/vmlinuz.old.

BUGS
       installkernel resides in /sbin only because the Linux kernel makefiles call it from there.
       It should really be in /usr/sbin.  It isn't needed to boot a system.
