Upgrading the kernel

Upgrading the kernel

Post by Samir Jau » Sat, 29 Oct 1994 08:58:18

Hello !
Is there a benefit to upgrading the kernel in terms of performance, features.
Currently I use 1.0.8 (Slackware distribution) and I run SLIP and X-windows and use most of the other software available for linux without any major problems.
Thanks in advance.

1. If RedHat upgraded, will kernel also be upgraded?

I'm an utter newbie, so forgive me if I provide too much info.

I'm using Red Hat 5.0 and Linux kernel 2.0.32i686  

I was advised to upgrade to Red Hat 6.1  

The question:  Will upgrading to Red Hat 6.1 also upgrade my kernel?  

The significance of the question:  I was informed my kernel was fairly
old and that I might have to upgrade it if I planed to upgrade to
Netscape Communicator 4.7 (currently using Nets. Comm. 4.04).
