upgrade redhat 4.1 -> 4.2

Post by Bill » Wed, 02 Jul 1997 04:00:00

I downloaded a number of the .rpm files from the redhat ftp site.
I attempted to run "rpm -Uvh" on each package, but I did not obtain
the results I expected.  For example, I ran rpm update on
kernel-2.0.30-2.src.rpm but I did not find any changed files on my
system.  i.e. I did find the appropriate kernel directory under
/usr/src where my current 2.0.27 kernel exists.

What am I doing wrong and what is the proper procedure for
update to 4.2 files?

Bill  randomly punched a keyboard and produced:

That is the sources for the kernel package.  This installs spec files
under /usr/src/redhat/SPECS, sources under /usr/src/redhat/SOURCE.

What you probably want to install is the binary for the kernel
package, kernel-2.0.30-2.i386.rpm

(or sparc, or alpha).


1. Upgrading Redhat 4.1 -> 4.2

I've been putting off my upgrading to v4.2 for a while now,
mainly because my 4.1 system is working perfectly and I don't want
to break it. I have a directory on my hard drive with all the 4.2
rpms in it and about 800 MB of free space on that partition. Can I
just safely type "rpm -U *" and sit back and relax? What can
go terribly wrong? (Something always does...)
