    Hi dskonnur,

    If you are suggest updating the file unionfs-2.4_for_2.6.18.8..

    Try and run this command from the CLI (command line interface) as root :

    # yum update unionfs

    The information you provided seems like you are try to patch a file in two different kernels, unionfs-2.4 to unionfs-, if so you may need to update your kernel first.

    Remember to backup your system before undertaking a kernel update.

    I hope this is of help.
