That confirms what I have been seeing the past few days, that no updates are available! The kernel-headers for the latest kernel is there, along with the latest kernel. However, it is not shown in the GRUB menu when I boot the box, and, the box boots the old kernel. My knowledge of Linux, obviously, is very limited. How can I correct this, so the box will boot the latest kernel? TIA! Lanny > > And: pup is a frontend to yum is a frontend to rpm which holds the > package database.
