RE: [Linux-cluster] GFS update problem



Thanks that worked. Now the question remains why does the plain up2date
not work...

 Anyway will raise that with Redhat with the call I have logged to them.

hi Robert

not using up2date, unfortunately, but via the RHN web site or on the
RHEL4u4 ISOS:

1 RHN

- Sign in at https://rhn.redhat.com
- In the search box, select 'Packages' and type in 'kernel-smp' and
[Search]
- To dramatically reduce the number of kernel versions you will have to
sift through, select "Channels relevant to your systems" and unselect
the architectures, and [Search]. (doing this for me reduced the number
of matches from 900 to 200.
- Click on kernel-smp
- Click on the '>|' (the newest packages are at the end)
- You may have to forward a page or two ('<')
- Click on kernel-smp-2.6.9-42.EL.i686
- Click on 'Download Package' at the bottom

2 ISOs/CDs (If you have downloaded them)

ISO 2 for i386 and x86_64

3 If you have Red Hat Satellite, you will have this package localy, and
depending on how you many software channels you have, the number of
kernel version packages to sift through should be significantly less
(OT: I am not sure why RHN Hosted thinks that RHL 9.0 is relevant to me
- I have only RHEL 4 systems registered)

I upgraded a customer of mine to GFS 6.1 u4 / RHEL 4.4 3 days ago and we
are fairly happy so far.

good luck

Riaan
