37.3. Downloading the Upgraded Kernel

There are several ways to determine if an updated kernel is available for the system.

If Red Hat Network was used to download and install the updated kernel, follow the instructions in Section 37.5 Verifying the Initial RAM Disk Image and Section 37.6 Verifying the Boot Loader, only do not change the kernel to boot by default. Red Hat Network automatically changes the default kernel to the latest version. To install the kernel manually, continue to Section 37.4 Performing the Upgrade.
