Updating Kernel


I decided that tonight i would download all the updates for my RH 8 using the built in update agent. I chse to update my kernel and my kernel source. But when i try to begin the update/download i get this error:

There was a package dependency problem. The message was:

Unresolvable chain of dependencies:
kernel-ntfs-2.4.18-14 requires kernel = 2.4.18-14

Please modify your package selections and try again.

What does this mean?? Do i have to upgrade my kernel one level befor i can go any farther??

ANy help would be appreciated.

well it appears that its trying to update the kernel-ntfs before it does the kernel where kernel-ntfs needs that kernel version, so maybe try updating the kernel first and deselecting kernel-ntfs for it won't attempt to do it, and then when the kernel is done, then load up up2date again and then do the kernel-ntfs package...

my only kernel options in up2date are 'kernel' and 'kernel-source'. I tried doing just one or the other, but they both need to be selected. And even when they are the only updates i have selected i get the same error.

Test install failed because of package conflicts:
file /usr/include/GL/glu.h from install of XFree86-devel-4.2.1-21 conflicts with file from package Mesa-common-devel-3.2.1-1

What should i do??

I'd try removing the NTFS support RPM for your kernel, try updating, then adding it back...

But read below my name, i'm just a newb... :P

Might wanna ask someone who isnt if they think that might work, as for xfree i have no clue...
