    Greetings ,

    Today i find a message in WHM that :

    You are running an insecure kernel (2.4.18-27.7.xsmp). You should upgrade to a newer version as soon as possible to avoid your system being compromised.


    How can upgrade it ?


    Thank you ..

    In Whm I went into software, install RPM, and choose Up2Date. That easy. However when I try and run it I get errors. When I do the command that was referenced above (and any command for that matter, real or not)

    root@server1 [/]# up2date --nox -f kernel
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 9, in ?
    import rpm
    ImportError: No module named rpm


    Not sure what to do from here. Anyone?

    your running the machine locally, or have a rented server? Most times your server provider will update the kernal for you, other times they will charge you an arm, a leg, and maybe ur head.

    I believe to use up2date your server needs to be registered with the redhat network... then again i might be wrong.. i'm a newbie lol

    I am not sure that this error applies to registration. I may be wrong though.
