Default I cannot find the package: kernel-headers-2.6.32-71.29.1 in centos mirror list

Hi guys,

I want to build openvswitch kernel module, and my centos is 6.0, kernel
version is 2.6.32-71.29.1.el6.x86_64. But i cannot find the
kernel-headers-2.6.32-71.29.1.el6.x86_64. I use the yum command to install
kernel-headers package: yum
install kernel-headers-2.6.32-71.29.1.el6.x86_64, it says no package
available. (BTW My yum repos is coming from
http://www.centos.org/modules/tinycontent/index.php?id=30.)

Please help me if you have this package, or plz tell me where can find it.

Thanks in advanced,
Kris

CentOS 6.0 is deprecated, current is 6.3 plus current updates. IT is
important to keep your install up to date.

Once you updated your CentOS installation to the current state,
including the current kernel, rebootet your system with the new kernel,
you can simply run "yum install kernel-headers".

Don't top-post please! Thanks.

Going from 6.0 to 6.3 is no upgrade. It is just applying the pending
updates. And it *is* easy. So please do that to cover especially
security issues and other malfunctions.

Alexander

your system is built on a nearly 2 year old system with no security
patches or bug fixes? are you setting your self up for failure?

kernel 2.6.32-71 is from 2010-11-10, there have been probably 1000
separate patches made to the EL6 kernel since then, never mind the rest
of the distribution.

CentOS 6.0 was actually obsolete the day it was released, as RHEL had
already released 6.1, which CentOS followed with in a matter of weeks.

the product is EL6, the .0, .1, .. are merely security rollups of the
ongoing stream of updates and patches.

yum update
http://mirror.nl.leaseweb.net/centos-vault/6.0/updates/x86_64/RPMS/kernel-headers-2.6.32-71.29.1.el6.x86_64.rpm

As already mentioned, it is not recommended to use a 2 year old kernel
without security updates.

Best regards,

Morten

You are right, Thomas. i want to find the kernel-headers firstly, and then
i will find the kernel-devel. and the kernel-headers is needed by gcc.

I have a question: is it ok if the version of kernel-header and
kernel-devel are not same?

BR,
Kris
