Your kernel update went well...the 3.7 is the 3.7.4 kernel. It's just - in my undstanding - a different display-description.

If you do
Code: Select all
eselect kernel list
you can see, that the right one is active and in use, there's no possibility to chose another 3.7.x kernel.

Apparently, it is:

Code: Select all
aspire5536 fitzcarraldo # eselect kernel list
Available kernel symlink targets:
  [1]   linux-3.7.0-sabayon *
aspire5536 fitzcarraldo #

Code: Select all
aspire5536 fitzcarraldo # equo search linux-sabayon
