I'd like to know what is the latest secure kernel version that supports CentOs 4.4 and is compatible with cpanel.

I asked this question to cpanel support but they were unable to answer me.

Check the announce mailinglist of CentOS, security updates for centOS will be posted there:

http://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos-announce

According to that mailinglist, this is probably the last CentOS kernel:

http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-announce/2006-October/013313.html

Unlikely to the vanilla kernels at kernel.org, this are the CentOS stock kernels which you do not have to compile manually. This is probably a better way to update your kernel, if you don't need any new kernel features.

we noticed there has been a kernel update release according to the lastest up2date info.
Code:
Server: RHEL ES release 4 (Nahant Update 4)
Current Kernel: 2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp
Update Release: 2.6.9-42.0.8.ELsmp
does any one know if this a stable release or if there's problems with this recent release? Where can one get more info on this kernel?

TIA,
Mickalo

Hi, quick question. Did you run something via SSH to get this?

Server: RHEL ES release 4 (Nahant Update 4)
Current Kernel: 2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp
Update Release: 2.6.9-42.0.8.ELsmp


If so, I would dearly love to know the comman. Thanks.

uname -a can give you some kernel/OS information. cat /etc/redhat_version, debian version or *version* some distribution information

Thanks much.

Yes I know about uname -a giving the currently installed version. It's the current version (for what we have installed) that I would like to geek out somehow. Sorry, I really don't understand the second half of your post.

Isn't there a command for up2date that will give you this?
