updating kernel with yum-35

Or, a new vulnerability has been uncovered in an existing Linux kernel.

In other times, your Linux server may be unreliable with frequent system crashes.

You still need to set any newly added configuration options by manually answering questions.

If you do not know the meaning of each option, just press enter to accept a default answer.

Updating the kernel on your Digital Ocean Droplet is a straight forward process that differs slightly based on the Droplet's operating system.

In this guide, we'll walk you through the process of updating your kernels for Digital Ocean Droplets.

The kernel version numbering system is easy to understand.

Kernel versions are numbered using the format , 5 in the examples shown in the previous section, changes much more often as new features are added to the kernel, such as new file systems, as major subsystems undergo significant remodeling, as significant bugs are fixed, or as security patches are incorporated into the source code.

After you have determined the version of the kernel you are currently running, the next step is to obtain the latest version of the kernel source code. Now the latest stable kernel is 4.5.3 At any given time, there are almost always two versions of the Linux kernel available, the stable and the unstable or development version.
