E pur si muove

It's only been 2 days since I last installed a new Linux kernel on my Gentoo machine, but another one has been downloaded and installed. Here's what I typed to install it:

root@lasek ~ # cd /usr/src
root@lasek /usr/src # rm linux
root@lasek /usr/src # ln -s linux-2.6.25-gentoo-r7 linux
root@lasek ~ # cd
root@lasek ~ # genkernel --kernel-config=/etc/kernels/kernel-config-x86-2.6.25-gentoo-r6 --menuconfig --splash=gentoo all && emerge nvidia-drivers && emerge madwifi-ng

Next was to check the configuration, and let the compilation occur. Then update the /boot/grub/grub.conf file. Reboot, and here is the result:

evilric@lasek ~ $ uname -a
Linux lasek 2.6.25-gentoo-r7 #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Jul 23 22:31:51 EST 2008 i686 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

Too easy! Truly seamless...
