I try to upgrade my server (Centos 4.3) with Yum Update and it seems CentOS made major changes because about 45 packages must be updated. 2 days ago there was none. The problem I am running into is that CPanel added some excludes on the kernel upgrade and it breaks the compatibility with the 45 packages and the yum update doesn't process. The faulty exclusion is kernel*.

Is it safe to upgrade anyway by temporary removing the kernel* exclusion?
Regards,
Max

If you want to upgrade the kernel, then yes. You will have to reboot the server after that, however, so plan for that.

Go on, have a guess
If you dont want to upgrade the kernel just yet, then you usually need the optional rpm kernel-ib to get things going in CentOSv4.4 which you can either do by downloading that rpm from one of the CentOS v4.4 update mirrors. If it isn't kernel-ib that's blocking your yum updates, post the errors you're seeing.
