    Help Kernel update to a version below up2date


    HI.

    I just installed Oracle Linux 5.1 straight from CD, But I need to be running
    kernel-2.6.18-53.1.19.0.1.el5.x86_64, This is not the latest and u2date will
    just upgrade me to the latest version. I know I need the below files, I found this
    in a Tech note but I can't locate these files on the Oracle site.


    kernel-2.6.18-53.1.19.0.1.el5.x86_64.rpm
    kernel-debug-2.6.18-53.1.19.0.1.el5.x86_64.rpm
    kernel-debug-devel-2.6.18-53.1.19.0.1.el5.x86_64.rpm
    kernel-devel-2.6.18-53.1.19.0.1.el5.x86_64.rpm
    kernel-doc-2.6.18-53.1.19.0.1.el5.noarch.rpm
    kernel-headers-2.6.18-53.1.19.0.1.el5.x86_64.rpm
    kernel-xen-2.6.18-53.1.19.0.1.el5.x86_64.rpm
    kernel-xen-devel-2.6.18-53.1.19.0.1.el5.x86_64.rpm


    How do I update to the version I need, Is there an easy way using u2date, if not
    how do I manage this.

    Thanks
    Alan

    Is the auto update on your system working? if its working it should automatically get the updates from the site, and ask which ones you want to install.

    latest version.

    When looking for a specific kernel release, for whatever the reason, why not go right to the source? (pun intended)

    Index of /pub/linux/kernel/v2.6

    Just download which version you need, compile it and you're good to go!

    By the way, Welcome to the Forums!
