Where do i obtain new kernels in ".rpm" format to update my RHEL5?
Is it only available to RHN subscribers?
Yes. However a kernel rpm from Centos should work. (Note - I have never tried this myself)

i downloaded latest kernel (linux- from
#tar -xjvf linux-
after this i have a directory with lots of stuff in there. how do i use this directory?
You can then build a kernel RPM using the appropriate tools. A good starting place for details about how to do that is FedoraProject: Building a custom kernel. Note - unless you have a fast system, kernel builds can take a relatively long time to execute.

for example..made by openVz, centos, fedora, debian
can any of these be used to update any flavor of linux?
Yes, no and maybe. It depends on your level of knowledge and experience, your system and your OS enviroment above the kernel.

Difficulty: Medium
Microcontrollers operating within embedded systems (such as the Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and other similar systems) always have internal hardware to keep track of time.
True or False?

page_util_quote - page character quoting utilities SYNOPSIS
package require page::util::quote ?0.1? package require snit ::page::util::quote::unquote char ::page::util::quote::quote'tcl char ::page::util::quote::quote'tclstr char ::page::util::quote::quote'tclcom char _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
This package provides a few utility commands to convert characters into various forms. API
::page::util::quote::unquote char A character, as stored in an abstract syntax tree by a PEG processor (See the packages grammar::peg::interpreter, grammar::me, and their relations), i.e. in some quoted form, is converted into the equivalent Tcl character. The character is returned as the result of the command. ::page::util::quote::quote'tcl char This command takes a Tcl character (internal representation) and converts it into a string which is accepted by the Tcl parser, will regenerate the character in question and is 7bit ASCII. The string is returned as the result of this command. ::page::util::quote::quote'tclstr char This command takes a Tcl character (internal representation) and converts it into a string which is accepted by the Tcl parser and will generate a human readable representation of the character in question. The string is returned as the result of this command. The string does not use any unprintable characters. It may use backslash-quoting. High UTF characters are quoted to avoid problems with the still prevalent ascii terminals. It is assumed that the string will be used in a double-quoted environment. ::page::util::quote::quote'tclcom char This command takes a Tcl character (internal representation) and converts it into a string which is accepted by the Tcl parser when used within a Tcl comment. The string is returned as the result of this command. BUGS, IDEAS, FEEDBACK This document, will undoubtedly contain bugs and other problems.
