You should login to SSH and run up2date -u and update your kernel as necessary with up2date -uf kernel OR kernel-smp (you may also need to update kernel-utils, kernel-source, etc.)

redhat-release is commonly missed as well. Check your up2date config and ensure you're on the latest update 5 as well. New kernels have been made available to fix some serious issues.

Go on, have a guess
If you run the following you will see what would be installed:

up2date -l

If you want to skip certain modules make sure you have configured your pkgskiplist in:

up2date --config

You can get lists of apps to skip by searching the forum for pkgskiplist. You'll possibly have to add mod_utils* to that list if you compile your own kernel.

ok thanks, i have look on it but in option 9 i have

9. pkgSkipList ['kernel*', 'spamassassin*', 'httpd*', 'perl', 'mysql*',

i dont want kernel upgrade bcs i do it myself from source, also for Mysql and apache if i use this option the server will upgrade to the latest software version? example i use now mysql 4.0.23 if i run up2date i will get the mysql 4.1?
