I'm new to Linux as of 3 days ago so bare with me .Basically, could upgrading the kernel via up2date cause problems? Will I have to do anything special or will everything just take affect and thats it? At the moment its in the ignored list by default and I'm scared to take it out.
Thanks for any help and if you need clarification just ask.
According to uname -a your right., version 2.4.20-31.9 There was one problem I forgot about though, GRUB still have the old kernel in the bootloader menu...should I just find out how to remove it or is something wrong?
I deleted all the old kernal files (in one command I might add...I was impressed lol) in /boot but grub still shows the old kernel. I'm in grub.conf right now in vi about to remove the old kernel's entry...stop me if I shouldn't lol
