Try to st run "yum update" or "yum update kernel*". The latest released updates are always there. If there's a reason that yum doesn't work for you, you should post that so people can give you a more appropriate solution.

I am using centos 6.5 minimal version, some of the updates may not be relevant for my OS. So I need to verify and decide the patches and accordingly need to update my OS.  Is there any way for this?
yum update will only update the packages installed on your system, so if  you've installed certain packages, then its presumed that any fixes/updates to those packages are relevant.

The descriptions of what the various updates fix are documented on redhat's update bulletins.

I installed CentOS 6.4 on a partition on my computer a few days ago, and I'm trying to equip it with the software i think i need.

For example, i need, or i think i need, a couple of gnustep programs for uploading images from my digital camera (the programs being openapp and

I imagine that these are old enough that they must surely exist in rpms somewhere.

But i apparently don't know how to google around sufficiently well to locate a repository that contains them, or even that contains packages that i know exist as rpms. For example: i'm certain that an rpm exists for
a package called gnustep-make, because its name popped up on But if i try 'sudo yum install gnustep-make' i get 'No package gnustep-make available.'
So that clearly means that i don't have enough repositories configured for use.

So, i'd be grateful for any pointers to a list of CentOS-compatible repositories that i can put in the yum configuration (/etc/yum.repos.d or elsewhere).

I have git version 1.8.4.msysgit.0 installed. If I run this as a daemon, where are the repositories located? (i.e. where do i do a mkdir foo.git; cd foo.git; git init --bare?)

How do I change where the (server) repositories live?

I was handed a dump file by a 3rd party and I am supposed to analyze it. I've got it loaded and can look at the log and do all the usual things without any apparent errors. But I notice that some revision numbers are missing.

How can this be?

Is there a well-run package repo that has httpd-2.4.17 or mod_http2 (or mod_h2)?
I'd like to try out http2 without having to compile my own httpd.

I have a problem with older version of anaconda linux installer. I have upgraded kernel in my distro, but, when this anaconda boot with new 3.4.52 kernel, can NOT find cdrom. As far as I understand, this is because the new kernel recognize cd drive as srX, scdX instead of older hdX with 2.6.18. At the moment I can not upgrade anaconda and forced this kernel to recognize it as before.

Are there any kernel command line argument, kernel config or something else for kernel 3.4.52 to recognize this cdrom as hdX?
