SLES 10 SP3 Kernel Update
Could someone give me a pointer on a kernel update please ?
We have installed SLES 10 SP3, 64 bit (6 core CPU). The customer is requesting we install kernel patch 7568 due to security improvements.
a) Is that patch definitely OK for 64 bit ? It mentions i586/x86 only, no mention of x86_64.
b) Am I right in thinking I need to install only the one rpm, the smp kernel "kernel-smp-126.96.36.199-0.79.1.i586.rpm" ? Output from uname is Kernel 188.8.131.52-0.54.5-smp. So I don't want the default kernel ? Or any of the other rpm's available under that patch ? There's a few to choose from ->
Thanks for your help in avoiding any midnight disasters.

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
The i586 rpms are 32-bit only. You need an x86_64 or amd64 tagged kernel rpm for 64-bit use.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
