    No, kernel updates are not supported through the WHM interface. You'll need to do this through terminal access (ssh if you don't have physical access to the server).

    Assuming that this is a Red Hat system (you didn't specify), then updating the kernel is as simple as updating the kernel rpms, then editing either lilo.conf or grub.conf depending upon what your system uses.

    This link is a little outdated, but still very relevant:

    depending on what your running, you may want to check out this thread about using Yum. Works very well :)

    Definately, up2date is the best thing to use to upgrade your kernel. I'm not speaking from experience, but that's the general concensus.

    Just edit /etc/sysconfig/rhn and remove kernel from the pkgSkipList.

    pkgSkipList=;

    should work.

    Hello,

    When i try to Update in SSH by typing Up2date i get an error :-

    Your GPG keyring does not contain the Red Hat, Inc. public key.
    Without it, you will be unable to verify that packages Update Agent downloads
    are securely signed by Red Hat.

    Your Update Agent options specify that you want to use GPG.

    To install the key, run the following as root:

    rpm --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY

    Plz tell me from where can i get a key ?

    Try running the command indicated in the message. It should work without any problem. Then give up2date another go.

    "man rpm" may provide better insight into your issue, but I believe the option you're looking for is "--nosignature".
