    Hello Folks,

    Is there a site we can signup to receive updates by email of only the latest kernels released in the 2.4 and 2.6 series. Would be easier to keep track of and immediately update kernels accordingly.

    Regards,

    check on the up2date site, or just register with rhl. Thats not the answer you were looking for I know, but whm is pretty good at telling you if your kernel is out of date if you login into whm as root.

    Its cool man. Just my pet pieve is people responding to posts, and having their post not help or be critical of someone else trying to help brainstorm, but with out them offering anything to table, just putting down some one elses ideas.

    My appologies as well if I came off as rude, I am just having a cranky day - shitty day so far.

    I've run up2date correctly and it says my system is up to date but WHM still tells me my kernal is out of date.

    You are running an insecure kernel (2.4.20-18.8). You should upgrade to a newer version .... etc etc

    Anyone know why ?

    My primary concern was that I would be able to upgrade the kernel as soon as we got the news. Doesn't make sense to hold off an upgrade till Cpanel/WHM terms it exploitable.

    Cheers,

    Its not really cpanels responsibility to tell you your operating system need upgrading.

    You should be keeping on top of that yourself.

    Where did I mean to say it was Cpanel's responsibility ? I wanted to upgrade as soon as a kernel was out and wanted to check if there was any mailing list to that effect.

    Since you are running RHL, and the errata has come to an end of life for 7.2, 7.3, 9.0 etc. They are no longer supporting, or comming out with security fixes for those OS anymore. I think 9.0 may go till march or april 1st, but after that it appears you are on your own - unless some one out there compiles custom kernels or something.

    As far as a specific site, well I am sure there is one out there other than RHL's errata, but I dont know it.

    Have to upgrade all RH machines to Fedora I guess. A couple of machines are now running RHE, so no issues there. Just waiting to do the RH upgrades after a proper study of the issue. Looks like it already has been done at the EV1 forums..

    You've probably got the kernel in your skip list. Just download the kernel and install it manually. Its quite simple and there are a few threads on this forum detailing how its done.
