Redhat 8.0 up2date the kernel..how?

hey there,

I got a RH8.0 box, I used to up2date -uv. by default that wont update the kernel.

I tried up2date-configure to remove the kernel from the non-update list. still I can't update the kernel.

so How can I use up2date to upgrade the kernel?

many thanks in advance.

mike

I think you must select the new kernel source along with the kernel itself in order to update it. Also make sure that there is not another kernel version between what you have now and what you want to upgrade to now, if so, you must first upgrade to the next level, before you can do the latest one.

Hi Mike

I think up2date -f -u will do the job (see man up2date); At least it worked on my boxes (RH7.3 and RH8.0. Pls. note that the new kernel is installed and you have to remove the old kernel manually (rpm -e ...) in case you don't need it anymore (check avail. space on /boot before)

cheers,

Christian
