4.4 Upgrading Your System

To upgrade your system to Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 5:

  1. After enabling access to the appropriate channels, including ol7_UEKR5, in the Oracle Linux yum server repository or ol7_x86_64_UEKR5 on ULN, run the following command to upgrade the system to UEK R5:

    # yum update
  2. After upgrading the system, reboot it, selecting the UEK R5 kernel (version 4.14.35) if this is not the default boot kernel.

If you have questions regarding configuring or using yum to install updates, refer to Oracle® Linux: Unbreakable Linux Network User's Guide for Oracle Linux 6 and Oracle Linux 7.

The kernel's source code is available through a public git source code repository at https://github.com/oracle/linux-uek.
