Wrong Linux kernel in Debian droplet

February 11, 2015 2.5k views


I've upgraded my Debian 7.0 wheezy droplet to Debian jessie and among the upgrades was the Linux kernel from version 3.2.0-4-amd64 to 3.16.0-4-amd64

I've removed 3.2.0 from the system via apt and currently my /boot contains only vmlinuz-3.16.0-4-amd64 and related (initrd, System.map and config). In /boot/grub/menu.lst there are no references to 3.2.0

However, uname shows me that I am running 3.2.0 kernel.

Is it possible it's not showing the real loaded kernel? Or the upgraded kernel isn't loading for some reason?

I'd appreciate any pointers

The kernel is managed externally on the hypervisor. Checkout this article for information on managing the kernel through the control panel:

As we don't officially support Jessie yet, you'll need to have the kernel imported manually. Open up a support ticket, and the team should be able to do that for you.
