If you were to run the command: man rpm in a terminal, you would get the manual page for RPM. If you were to read on how to upgrade with rpm, you will find the command is similar to:
Code:
rpm -Uvh package.version.rpm
Now...
If you currently have (example), kernel-2.6.25-13mdv.rpm, and you want to upgrade to kernel-2.6.26-1mdv.rpm, the full name of the kernel you want to upgrade to is what you use in the rpm upgrade command as such:
Code:
rpm -Uvh kernel-2.6.26-1mdv.rpm

Thank you Junior Hacker.

Actually I want to update kernel of linux redhat 9.0. the installed kernel version is 2.4.20-8. I have downloaded kernel-2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.i686

when I run the command as you guide me:-

rpm -Uvh kernel-2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.i686.rpm

but the error is same. "V3 DSA Signature: Bad key id"

also tell me could the version downloaded kernel-2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10be upgraded on the old one 2.4.20-8?

Thank You

Not unless you are running Fedora. And that error has happened for many people, but it has supposedly been taken care of long ago according to Google.
