Hi

I am running CPANEL on RedHat 7.2 and my system tells me to upgrade the kernel. So I read the &how to& in another thread and it seems not so difficult, but I don't know to which version I should upgrade ?

Currently I am running 2.4.7-10, standard for RedHat 7.2 I guess.
I saw also on www.kernel.org that 2.4.19 is the latest stable version.
BUT I also read that some of these latest version are not appropriate for RedHat 7.2 ?!

So to which version do I have to upgrade when you know I have a ServeLinux L4 server, with a Pentium 4 2GHZ, RedHat 7.2 with EXT3, LILO bootloader and currently kernel 2.4.7-10 ?

Thank you for this info !
