I have a CentOS machine with CentOS 5.4.
The installed kernel is 2.6.18-164.15.1.el5.centos.plus. We have a big amount of data inside the machine and we need to backup, the machine has a USB 3.0 connection but to make use of it we need to update kernel to at least version 2.6.31 (which is the first to support USB 3.0)
It seems to be possible with kernel-lt packages from el-repo as stated here, but, if you look at ELrepo the packages for EL5 are not there.
I have been looking in the internet and I found a place where the packages are available:
Either if I activate the el-repo repositories and I fire:
yum search kernel-lt
That search returns me the following packages:
kernel-lt.x86_64 : The Linux kernel. (The core of any Linux-based operating system.) kernel-lt-devel.x86_64 : Development package for building kernel modules to match the kernel. kernel-lt-doc.noarch : Various bits of documentation found in the kernel source. kernel-lt-headers.x86_64 : Kernel C header files for use by glibc.
When I tried to install that four packages with "yum install" the result is: Nothing to do
I would be very proud if somebody can give me some light on how to do it.
Thanks for all in advance Manuel Luis Aznar
