Bug Fix Advisory
Updated gnbd-kernel packages that fix module-loading issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.7, kernel release 2.6.9-78.EL.
The gnbd-kernel packages contain modules that allow the Global Network
Block Device (gnbd) to communicate with the kernel.
These updated gnbd-kernel packages are in sync with the latest kernel
(2.6.9-78.EL). The modules in earlier gnbd-kernel packages fail to load
because they do not match the running kernel. It is possible to
force-load the modules; however, with this update, force-loading the
modules is not required.
Users are advised to upgrade to these latest gnbd-kernel packages, which
are updated for use with the 2.6.9-78.EL kernel.
Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:
rpm -Fvh [filenames]
where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the

people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:
This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
