This information was for Fedora 14 and needs to be updated

When using Fedora a free service to update running kernels is available through KSplice. There is no good reason not too download this and set it to auto-install.

Install the package using yum install ksplice-uptrack.rpm --nogpgcheck -y. After installing the package run "uptrack-upgrade -n" and accept the license and let it retrieve an API key.

Open up /etc/upstart/upstart.conf and change "autoinstall" to yes. It will automatically check and install updates every half an hour. The specific times it updates are not exact and adjusted by KSplice to balance the load on their servers.
