View Full Version : Kernel File Size

14th May 2007, 04:51 AM
Thanks for taking the time to read my question.

I'm at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Bugs/FC6Common and I have used yum to do updates to my kernel as I have the one for 586 not 3/686.

I'm at the point of installing the update, but not sure which one to do because I don't know the size of my currently installed kernel or the size of the one I've downloaded.

From the site:

2.Get the current i686 kernel:

* yumdownloader kernel.i686 --------DONE------------
The ORANGE is where I'm stuck

3.If the version of the kernel downloaded is larger than currently installed:

* su -c "rpm -ivh kernel-2*.i686.rpm"

Alternatively, if the version of the kernel downloaded is the same as that currently installed:

* su -c "rpm -ivh --replacefiles --replacepkgs kernel-2*.i686.rpm"

4.Restart the machine.

* reboot

Thanks again for your help.

Apparently I can't read....

VERSION not size.
