OVH, the hosting company where I have my dedicated serves, does some quality assurance on the Linux kernels, the ones it deploys on newly installed servers.
Now, after more than a year, there has been a new release. This is how upgraded the kernel on my Gentoo servers, which use Grub2:
# cd /boot # wget ftp://ftp.ovh.net/made-in-ovh/bzImage/latest-production/bzImage-3.8.13-xxxx-grs-ipv6-64 # wget ftp://ftp.ovh.net/made-in-ovh/bzImage/latest-production/System.map-3.8.13-xxxx-grs-ipv6-64 # grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg Generating grub.cfg ... Found linux image: /boot/bzImage-3.8.13-xxxx-grs-ipv6-64 done
If you use Grub2, regardless of the distribution, it should work the same.
