Re: Kernel Update



Hi Alexandre and others on the list.

Thanks for your input on my question regarding reconfiguring the latest
kernel.  I ran "up2date --get kernel-source &&
  rpm -U /var/spool/up2date/kernel-source*.rpm" as you suggested and saw that it updated the previous kernel (2.6.5-1.358) and not the latest update 2.6.6-1.383. I tried amending your little script to be specific to this kernel and it said it couldnt find it.
Just wondering where this leaves me now, and what the next step might
be??
