I seem to recall quite a few kernel updates on FC4, I don't know how you
missed them. This is from one of my FC4 boxes:
[tim at giggles ~]$ rpm -qi kernel|grep nstall
Install Date: Thu 25 May 2006 19:03:10 CST Build Host: hs20-bc1-5.build.redhat.com
Install Date: Thu 29 Jun 2006 01:53:36 CST Build Host: hs20-bc1-5.build.redhat.com
Install Date: Sat 29 Jul 2006 22:03:28 CST Build Host: hs20-bc1-4.build.redhat.com
I don't recall all of them, but above are the ones still on one of my
boxes. I'm sure I manually removed a few over time.
Yes, there's been a few new kernels with the current release, I don't
think it's been much different from prior releases.
(This box runs FC5, my others run FC4 & FC6, in case that's
important to the thread.)
Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
