"eselect kernel list" shows nothing [Solved]

Post by gocool » Fri Feb 26, 2016 20:46

Hi,
Is this normal? I did a "eselect kernel list" to check the kernel installed in my machine and it came up with nothing.

Code: Select all

user # eselect kernel list
Available kernel symlink targets:
  (none found)
I did a df -h and it gives the below result

Code: Select all

user # df -h
Filesystem                                   Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
none                                         3.9G  1.2M  3.9G   1% /run
udev                                          10M     0   10M   0% /dev

Looks weird. Please advise.

Change the word "kernel" to "bzimage"
It seems eselecting the "kernel" has been deprecated.

That does appear to be normal for a Sabayon installation. Seems we've deviated from Gentoo in that regard. Whether that was on purpose or not, I'm not sure. But it's not causing any problems.

To see the kernel you are running:

Code: Select all

$ uname -r
One step further if you want, see where /usr/src/linux is symlinked to (that's really all eselect does for you)

Code: Select all

$ ls -l /usr/src/linux
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Jan 19 16:49 /usr/src/linux -> linux-4.4.0-sabayon
Or better yet, dave knows what's up!
