I am using fedora 13 (2.6.33 ). Due to some reasons I cannot update the kernel nor can I upgrade fedora itself to 18 due to some legacy software I am using for business purpose. So my question is how do I update my applications to the latest versions using yum without actually updating the kernel/distro. For eg when I
yum update firefox
It shows me the firefox version 3.x. instead of 19.0.
I have the option to download the binaries from website but for some applications I manually have to resolve the dependency issue.
So how do I temporarily set my source to fedora 18 source for some specific application.
