39.3. Downloading the Upgraded Kernel

39.3. Downloading the Upgraded Kernel

There are several ways to determine if an updated kernel is available for the system.

If Red Hat Network was used to download and install the updated kernel, follow the instructions in Section 39.5, “Verifying the Initial RAM Disk Image” and Section 39.6, “Verifying the Boot Loader”, only do not change the kernel to boot by default. Red Hat Network automatically changes the default kernel to the latest version. To install the kernel manually, continue to Section 39.4, “Performing the Upgrade”.
