LINUX. Everything else is the DISTROBUTION PART..(RedHat, Slackware, Debian, Gentoo, Mandrake, LFS...)

 

Kernel for WIN32 (95.98/me..etc) = C:\windows\KERNEL* and other pieces.

 

For RedHat Linux = /boot/vmlinuz-* (star being the version number)

 

For RedHat 7.1 without any Patching done, you are (should) be running 2.4.2-something.

 

Currently I am using 2.4.20-5 for Debian Linux.

 

And you are running it... without the Kernel you have NOTHING.

 

You really need to look at THIS WEBPAGE ON REDHAT ERRATA...

so it is the system file in linux? like a boss file. he he he. the should call it ""general"" he he he. you get the joke? kernel = general? he he he!!!

No.

 

The kernel is not a file, it is the entire operating system. Without the kernel, you would have nothing.

 

As gfolket said, the kernel IS Linux. If you are running RedHat 8, you are already running the RH8 kernel.

 

Your Evolution problem is completely unrelated to the kernel.
