Hey guys,

How do I update the kernel on my box ?

WHM 10.8.0 cPanel 10.8.2-S120
RedHat Enterprise 3 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

Is it safe to do so ? I see there are some vuns out for certain so would like to update asap.

I check up2date and kernel updates are in the skiplist?

Should they not be in there?

pkgSkipList kernel*;courier*;mysql*;spamassassin*;httpd*;perl;mysql*;php*;mod_ssl*;imap*;squirrelmail*;caching-nameserver*;exim*;

pkgsToInstallNotUp ['kernel', 'kernel-modules']

Also just out of interest what the difference between pkgSkipList & pkgsToInstallNotUp

Thx an advance

Cpanel is not responsible for the kernel upgrade and thus the kernel* is being excluded in the update list. You may remove the kernel* from the excluded list , run the up2date and add in the kernel* after the upgrade. Remember to reboot your box to have the new kernel take effect.
