    Hello,

    I am new to linux and I am just wondering how to upgrade my kernal, i know this is a stupid question. I did a google search ( redhat.com, but unable to get the correct info.

    I also checked http://forum.rackshack.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=12622&highlight=up2date and checked the entire cpanel forum as well, but i think that it (up2date) upgrades all rmps [i am not sure], if anyone could tell me step by step (kernal alone) will do, since i have plenty of servers awaiting for kernal upgradation alone.

    Thanks in advance.

    Login as root,
    type:
    up2date --nox -f kernel

    Reboot once it's complete
    ignore tty

    Thanks for the quick response,

    I knew that this is not a place for the kernal issue, but still
    Will up2date --nox -f kernel, upgrade all the rpms or kernal alone?? what about /boot/grub.conf ? what about installation ?
    also i DON'T have a demo version or original from redhat network. will it automattically update if i use any version (not sure )

    Merry Christmas !
