How to upgrade from RHEL 5.1 to RHEL 5.2


I'm trying to upgrade from RHEL 5.1 to RHEL 5.2. When I use "yum upgrade" it tells me that everything is up to date. However, I'm still running RHEL 5.1.

How do I get "yum" to perform the upgrade?

Thanks

Are you registered to RHN and do you have the right base channel associated with your box?

You will have to buy a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Support Subscription when you want to receive updates.

If you don't need commercial support try Fedora or CentOS.
