    I like to run Linux command and update Kernel like:
    The system kernel is at version “2.6.32-642.6.1.el6.x86_64”
    How to do in the correct way and CentoOS system?

    Is it the correct way all the time?
    yum -y update

    If kernel packages are not excluded from yum, you can update via yum update. You should get offered kernel packages for updating.

    If your system is e.g a virtual server you might not be able to update the relevant kernel from inside your CentOS 6 installation.

    Hello,

    Once you run "yum update" to update the kernel, remember to reboot the system to complete the kernel update. To reboot the server, run the following command:

    Code:
    reboot
    Once the server is started again, you can check the kernel version with the following command:

    Code:
    uname -r
    Thank you.
