    Question system.map create/modify during linux life-time

    I am working on a piece of code that relies on the file /boot/System.map. I have several questions?

    - when is this file created? (during linux install? I guess)
    - does it change during linux life-time (during kernel updates only? I guess)

    Thanks in advance.

    It's created whenever the kernel is compiled, and that'll be the only time it changes.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah
