Hi All,

Could someone give me a pointer on a kernel update please ?

We have installed SLES 10 SP3, 64 bit (6 core CPU). The customer is
requesting we install kernel patch 7568 due to security improvements.
(Kernel is 'here'
(http://download.novell.com/protected...id=EYCOXyxfFS0))

a) Is that patch definitely OK for 64 bit ? It mentions i586/x86 only,
no mention of x86_64.
b) Am I right in thinking I need to install only the one rpm, the smp
kernel "kernel-smp-2.6.16.60-0.79.1.i586.rpm" ? Output from uname is
Kernel 2.6.16.60-0.54.5-smp. So I don't want the default kernel ? Or
any of the other rpm's available under that patch ?

Thanks for your help in avoiding any midnight disasters.

JF.
