for exmaple if I have a server running CentOS 6.3. now for security reason I want to update it's kernel to newer version without touching anything else.
because the yum repository file CentOS-Base.repo in yum.repos.d/ was still it's original version pointing to
http://mirror.centos.org/centos-6/6.3/ and not getting any updates. if I change that to
http://vault.centos.org/6.3/ I only have access to kernel version up to:
kernel-2.6.32-279.22.1.el6.x86_64.rpm 2013-02-06 04:47 25M
Now I want to point my repo to
http://mirror.centos.org/centos-6/6/ and install latest kernel for 6.X which is:
kernel-2.6.32-754.14.2.el6.x86_64.rpm 2019-05-15 14:10 32M
Are there any implications change kernel like this?
