A new kernel version needs to be compiled to use a new feature. If the old kernel configuration file is available, which make target will only update the configuration file for the new kernel version? (Please enter only the make target.)
Not make oldconfig. Would only make the target. Explanation:
oldconfig will read the defaults from an existing .config and rewrite necessary links and files. Necessary means what new features are added then the running kernel. Use this option if you#39;ve made minor changes to source files or need to script the rebuild process. Note that oldconfig will only work within the same major version of the kernel. You cannot
, for example, use a 2.4.x .config with the 2.6.x kernel.

Which command, with options, could be used to change an ext2 file system on
/dev/hda1 to an ext3 file system?
Answer: tune2fs -j /dev/hda1
tune2fs allows the system administrator to adjust various tunable filesystem parameters on Linux ext2/ext3 filesystems.
-j Add an ext3 journal to the filesystem. If the -J option is not specified, the default journal parameters will be used to create an appropriately sized journal stored within the filesystem. Note that you must be using a kernel which has ext3 support in order to actually make use of the journal.

On bootup, LILO prints out LIL and stops. What is the cause of this?
The descriptor table is bad.
LILO failed to load the second stage loader.
LILO failed to load the primary stage loader.
LILO failed to locate the kernel image.
Explanation: If you only see LIL- when booting the system, it means that LILO could not load the map file (descriptor table).
Reference: Roderick W. Smith. Sybex Linux Study Guide: Page 634.
B:If LILO failed to load the second stage loader, you would see only LI during bootup.
C:If LILO failed to load the primary stage loader, you wouldn’t see anything during bootup.
D:If LILO failed to locate the kernel image, you would see LILO during bootup followed by an error message about the missing kernel image.
