Want to download FC6 with kernel 2.6.20 or higher.


Hello All,

I have been looking for quite some time to download the complete Fedora Core 6 Linux OS with kernel 2.6.20 or higher. So far I only have got complete OS with 2.6.18 kernel only.


So far sites have been ascribing about 2.6.20 as an update only.
I'm asking it for my customer who is naive user and I do not want him to download 2.6.18 and later upgrade it to the 2.6.20.

Please help


Thanks,
Rajat

Is there any specific reason why it needs to have a 2.6.20.x kernel? You can always download/install a older version and then update the system with yum.

Keith,

Yes, I can do it. However, my customer who is in a different geographic location is not that skilled to do it. He is just a naive user.

Is it not possible to get the updated version of complete OS?

Rajat.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
If you already have a previous version of the CD you are
downloading, jigdo can re-use files on the old CD that are also
present in the new image, and you do not need to download them
again. Mount the old CD ROM and enter the path it is mounted under
(e.g. `/mnt/cdrom').
Alternatively, just press enter if you want to start downloading
the remaining files.

I have placed my FC6(kernel 2.6.18) CD 1 in the CD-ROM and it is mounted as /media/FC-6 i386 Disc 1.

Please suggest what could be the probable cause of this error and how should I go about resolving this.

Thanks,

% yum update

No more complicated than that
