kernel-switcher... Maybe a bug? [Solved]

Enabled sabayon-limbo just for fun... :mrgreen:
With
Code: Select all
# kernel-switcher switch sys-kernel/linux-sabayon-3.8
you get this message

* You are currently booting with kernel:
* kernel-genkernel-x86_64-3.7.0-sabayon
*
* Use 'eselect bzimage' in order to switch between the available ones



* If you are upgrading from a previous kernel, you may be interested
* in the following document:
* - General upgrade guide: http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/kernel-upgrade.xml

* Updating module dependencies for 3.8.0-sabayon ... [ ok ]
* Please report kernel bugs at:
* http://bugs.sabayon.org
* The source code of this kernel is located at
* =sys-kernel/sabayon-sources-3.8.
* Sabayon Linux recommends that portage users install
* sys-kernel/sabayon-sources-3.8 if you want
* to build any packages that install kernel modules
* (such as ati-drivers, nvidia-drivers, virtualbox, etc...).
>> ## Pulizia: sys-kernel/linux-sabayon-3.8

Simply solved using
Code: Select all
# eselect bzimage set kernel-genkernel-x86_64-3.8.0-sabayon


I know I'm using testing repos, but assuming that kernel-switcher is a tool for automated kernel upgrades, maybe the script left over to check what bzimage use to boot?

Ok, correcting me: explained here :pirat:
I apologize for the useless post, if some admin considers necessary to remove the discussion go ahead.
