<title>Add a Kernel</title>
<p>When you add a kernel to Walrus, you bundle the kernel file, upload the file to a bucket
in Walrus that you name, and then register the kernel with Eucalyptus.</p>
<p>To add a kernel to Walrus:</p>
<cmd>Use the following three commands:</cmd>
<codeblock>euca-bundle-image -i &lt;kernel_file> --kernel true
euca-upload-bundle -b &lt;kernel_bucket> -m /tmp/&lt;kernel_file>.manifest.xml
euca-register &lt;kernel_bucket>/&lt;kernel_file>.manifest.xml</codeblock>
<p>For example:</p>
<codeblock>euca-bundle-image -i euca-fedora-10-x86_64/xen-kernel/vmlinuz- --kernel true
Generating manifest /tmp/vmlinuz-
euca-upload-bundle -b example_kernel_bucket -m /tmp/vmlinuz-
Uploaded image as example_kernel_bucket/vmlinuz-
euca-register example_kernel_bucket/vmlinuz-
IMAGE eki-XXXXXXXX</codeblock>
<p>Where the returned value <codeph>eki-XXXXXXXX</codeph> is the unique ID of the registered kernel image.</p>
