CentOS, Yum and mismatched kernels

July 22, 2015 2k views

When I run yum check-update I see the following message:

Security: kernel-3.19.8-100.fc20.x86_64 is an installed security update
Security: kernel-3.13.9-200.fc20.x86_64 is the currently running version

Does this indicate a problem I should address?

Hi! It looks like you’re running a kernel that is older than the latest installed kernel on your droplet. You will need to configure your droplet to use kernel-3.19.8-100.fc20.x86_64 from the control panel (Settings -> Kernel).
