I am a newbie to linux...
I am trying to upgrade my RHEL5 kernel...
This is what the /boot/grub.menu.lst shows:
title Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (2.6.18-128.el5)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-128.el5 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
What file should i download for my i686 system...
Googling gives a number of options...of which I feel ovzkernel-2.6.18-194.8.1.el5.028stab070.5.i686.rpm is the right one for me??????Is it the latest stable kernel version...and how to install it????
[root@localhost temp]# yum install ovzkernel-2.6.18-194.8.1.el5.028stab070.5.i686.rpm
