Hi All...

I just upgraded the kernel on my machine from:

actual:/home/jim/openvz/kernels# uname -a
Linux actual.registrationtek.com 2.6.18-openvz-12-1etch1-amd64 #1 SMP Fri 
May 4 23:37:24 MSD 2007 x86_64 GNU/Linux

To:

vps5000:~# uname -a
Linux vps5000.regtek.com 2.6.18-openvz-13-39.1d1-amd64 #1 SMP Mon Sep 3 
10:11:00 MSD 2007 x86_64 GNU/Linux


I did this because I have been having a memory consumption problem with 
Exim4 I was hoping to resolve.  I had been told that the Exim4 memory issue 
was a known issue and was fixed in later kernels.

Anyhow, I installed the new kernel using dpkg -i and it seems to install 
fine, with no warnings or errors.  It boots and runs fine, even iSCSI. 
But, the odd issue is that the machine name in the prompt is wrong.  As you 
can see from above, it went from:

actual#

To:

vps5000#

The name of the machine in /etc/hostname is actual and vps5000 is the 
highest number vps I have.  Is this a serious issue or can I safely ignore 
it?

Thanks...

Jim
