Upgrading software

Normally when you need to Upgrade the software we use rpm –U .

When rpm –U is used for the software it will save the old config file as *.rpmsave.
But make a Note when you try to upgrade the kernel the old kernel will be deleted.

Do not use rpm –U or rpm –F for kernel software Upgradation.
Always use rpm –ivh kernel-version.acrh.rpm

Boot and test the new kernel
