Kernel upgrade error.....


Kernel upgrade error.....
Hello All,

I have a dedicated server in a remote location
(internationally) running RH7.3. I applied the following
kernel to fix the recently reported exploit, and got
the following error:


root@pacific [/]# up2date --nox -f kernel

Fetching package list for channel: redhat-linux-i386-7.3...

Any ideas what the error above means? Please help.

I'm not a redhat person however does the up2date utility have any rules concerning updating critical software (such as the kernel) remotely? ie... do you have to be logged in locally to update the kernel?
