    Hello All,

    I have a dedicated server in a remote location
    (internationally) running RH7.3. I applied the following
    kernel to fix the recently reported exploit, and got
    the following error:


    root@pacific [/]# up2date --nox -f kernel

    Any ideas what the error above means? Please help.

    Hello All,

    My etc dir contains both grub.conf and lilo.conf. I think this should have generated the above error. Following is lilo.conf of my server. Any comments, suggestion would be appreciated.

    /etc/lilo.conf
    ==========================

    root@pacific [/etc]# cat /etc/lilo.conf
    prompt
    timeout=50
    default=linux
    boot=/dev/hda
    map=/boot/map
    install=/boot/boot.b
    message=/boot/message
    lba32

    image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-3
    label=linux.bak
    initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.18-3.img
    read-only
    root=/dev/hda1

    image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-27.7.x
    label=linux.bak1
    root=/dev/hda1
    read-only

    image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-18.7
    label=linux
    root=/dev/hda1
    read-only
    ====================

    Thank you,

    When operating in command line mode, specifying package names as
    arguments to the program will attempt to retrieve (and possibly
    install, based on your configuration) those packages. Version,
    release, and architecture details will be determined by the Update
    Agent automatically.
