How can I determine what the differences are between minor revisions of the kernel package? For example, we have 2 servers built on the latest rhel 5 x86_64 available that were built several months apart. The first is rhel 5.6, and has
kernel-2.6.18-274.el5 , the second is rhel 5.7 w/ kernel-2.6.18-274.12.1.el5. What does the extra "12.1" mean, and what would we loose if we replaced it with kernel-2.6.18-274.el5 ?
