One important thing to consider is the life cycle of a kernel version – if the version you are currently using is approaching its end of life, no more bug fixes will be provided after that date. Most modern distributions provide a way to upgrade the kernel using a package management system such as yum and an officially-supported repository.

Important: If you looking to run custom compiled Kernel, then you should read our article that explains How to Compile Linux Kernel on Cent OS 7 from sources.

To show the current version installed on our system we can do: If we now go to https:// we will see that the latest kernel version is 5.0 at the time of this writing (other versions are available from the same site).

This new Kernel 5.0 version is a long-term release and will be supported for 6 years, earlier all Linux Kernel versions were supported for 2 years only.
