No. You only need the things that are needed by your system. This includes existing installed packages and some added dependencies.
if your system has access to the internet, then after reading the
How do i know what is needed by my system
There is no internet connection with that machine and i cannot bring that machine to the present location to have internet connection. I assume yum update fails then?
That's why I said your system must be upgraded using yum. Yum does this and many more for you automagically.
Just wondering to my self: Man how did I ended up on the CentOS4 area....
How do you know that 2.6.18-274.18.1.el5 is version 5.7?
So, i need to remove centos-4 kernel?
1) How do i remove centos version 4.
2) What files do i exactly need to download to install version 5.7. As i mentioned i have downloaded all the files with extension x86_64 from that website. Is there no single file which can be used to install Centos 5.7?
3) If i remove version 4, how i will be able to use yum command for installing the 5.7 version?
BTW, can we add this in to the FAQs? I mean, the question "How do I upgrade 4 to 5, 5 to 6, and 4 to 6?".
