INSTALLKERNEL(8)                                              INSTALLKERNEL(8)



NAME
       installkernel - tool to script kernel installation


SYNOPSIS
       installkernel <kernel-version> <bootimage> <mapfile>


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 {directory}/vmlinuz to the new kernel, and the previously
       installed kernel is available as {directory}/vmlinuz.old.
