After yum update kernel do I need to reboot?


I am always unclear on exactly when a reboot is needed. I know some updates will require reboot to be in use, but others won't.

I'm thinking the yum update of kernel that I just did probably needs reboot?

Yes, kernel updates need a reboot. AFAIK, every other software just needs a restart of the software, if running.
