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)

Quote:
i downloaded latest kernel (linux-2.6.31.5.tar.bz2) from kernel.org.
#tar -xjvf linux-2.6.31.5.tar.bz2
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.

Quote:
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.

NAME
uri_urn - URI utilities, URN scheme SYNOPSIS
package require Tcl 8.2 package require uri::urn ?1.1.2? uri::urn::quote url uri::urn::unquote url _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
This package provides two commands to quote and unquote the disallowed characters for url using the urn scheme, registers the scheme with the package uri, and provides internal helpers which will be automatically used by the commands uri::split and uri::join of package uri to handle urls using the urn scheme. COMMANDS
uri::urn::quote url This command quotes the characters disallowed by the urn scheme (per RFC 2141 sec2.2) in the url and returns the modified url as its result. uri::urn::unquote url This commands performs the reverse of ::uri::urn::quote. It takes an urn url, removes the quoting from all disallowed characters, and returns the modified urls as its result. BUGS, IDEAS, FEEDBACK This document, and the package it describes, will undoubtedly contain bugs and other problems. Please report such in the category uri of the Tcllib SF Trackers [http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=12883].
