    Why would you want to install the RH9 kernel when the equivalent kernel is
    available from Red Hat; https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/rh71-errata.html

     

    All the updates you need are available from the link above, however to
    save updating updates download the currently available updates(latest) for
    RH7.1 from here;

    ftp://updates.redhat.com/7.1/en/os/

    Maybe he wants to do it because, as of today, the RH7.1 kernel is
    unsupported but the RH9 kernel has 3 months left to go.

    It *may* be possible to install "just" the kernel, but there would be
    several things you need to do.

    You need to upgrade glibc and rpm itself first. If you just upgrade
    glibc, you'll pribably find rpm no longer works. If you break rpm,
    you're really stuck. Upgrading rpm means upgrading a few other things
    as well. rpm -U will tell you what you're missing.

    Upgrading the kernel will also involve upgrading things like modutils
    and mkinitrd. rpm -i will tell you what you're missing.

    If the box has XFree86 on it, you're going to have to upgrade that, too,
    as you upgrade glibc. Otherwise XFree86 will probably stop working.
    There could be other server packages that break because of the glibc
    upgrade, requiring their corresponding upgrade, as well.

    It's enough of a hassle that, personally, I'd recommend just going all
    the way to RH9. At that point, you have to decide if support for three
    more months is worth the effort. FWIW, I replaced an MTA based on RH7.3
    last week with one based on RH9 because I thought it was worth the
    effort. I'm typing this posting on a workstation based on RH7.3 which I
    haven't upgraded because I don't think it's worth the effort. YMMV.

    Been there, done that, quite some work and hundreds of patches
    for 7.1.

    IMHO it's not worth the trouble for RH 9, I'm currently testing
    ES 3.0 in order to update some 7.2/7.3 systems. Not really cheap
    the yearly fee per system, but then they guarantee 5 years of patches.
