Centos kernel updates
Last year I did the usual yum update process not long after I started my DO use and fouled my system up. DO support put my kernel back and told me to put this line in /etc/yum.conf : exclude=kernel* I "yum update -y" regularly on this droplet, multiple home systems and my AWS instances. However, I see my DO kernel getting progressively more out of date, as expected. Today I followed the documentation to upgrade my kernel, selecting what I know to be the current CentOS 6.5 x64 kernel on the DO web control panel. Then shutdown -r now, followed by power on at web control panel. It boots and I can access the console but can't ssh in, the ethernet doesn't seem to be up, etc -- just generally fouled up. So, I put the kernel back to what I have been running = 2.6.32-4188.8.131.52.1.el6.x86_64 and it's all working again. How do I update the kernel? I know that, at least for my droplet, neither the documentation nor what I have seen here on the forums works. Thanks for any help.
