I’ve been experiencing the oddest thing in RHEL4:
When a new kernel version was released:
- The upgrade its listed when I do
- One week later I tried to upgrade the kernel, but “surprise” the new kernel is not there anymore.
Now I really want to upgrade the kernel and don’t know how.
About the most usual explanation is that /boot is a separate partition with ‘noauto’ in /etc/fstab so is not mounted upon boot, when you type ‘up2date’ then the new kernels will be installed into /boot (which is actually on the / filesystem) and NOT into /boot 🙂
If this is the case then you may need to;
Then run your update command!
If you paste the output of ‘df -h’ into your question then someone can update their answer. Perhaps it is also something else which I’ve not covered! 🙂
