[root@localhost ~]# rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.32-358.2.1.el6.x86_64.rpm

bfa-firmware < conflicts with kernel-2.6.32-358.2.1.el6.x86_64
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa |grep bfa

Please kindly tell me whats the actual error

  • You made a mistake by manually downloading the RPM and installing it with the rpm command. You should use yum to install packages instead. – Michael Hampton May 14 '13 at 3:29

The later kernel requires a later version of the bfa-firmware package.

If you used yum to install the new kernel, yum would download the latest bfa-firmware package as well, and both packages (bfa-firmware and kernel) would be installed.

To upgrade to this kernel with rpm, you need to download bfa-firmware- or later and install that using rpm, then you'll be able install the later kernel package.
