1)download the kernel packages and then install them.
kernel packages are stored in the repo, but NOT accessible from slapt-get or gslapt
you can manually download the 6.0 kernel packages from here: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-6.0/kernels/
You will need the kernel and kernel-module packages, the kernel-src package is optional and only needed to build kernel and driversNOTE: All the following commands need to be ran as root
2)update your bootloader to add the new kernel, this can be done easily with vliloconf
3)install any extra driver packages needed by your system, these can be found by searching for the old kernel version in /var/log/packages
ls /var/log/packages/*$(uname -r)*
all kernel driver packages should be stored in the repo
you can download the 6.0 kernel driver packages from here: http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-6.0/kernels/drivers/
make sure to get the package that matches the kernel version you are installing
install any extra needed driver packages
4)run depmod to update the kernel module dependancies
root:$ depmod -aq 188.8.131.52
depmod needs to be ran with the new kernels version as an argument or ran under the kernel you want the modules updated for.
5)reboot into the new kernel and verify that it is working correctly
run "depmod -aq" and reboot if not ran in lest step
This would include making sure your video driver was working and that you compiled a driver for the running kernel if needed.
running the command "vxconf" as root will update the nvidia driver module
6)*OPTIONAL remove old kernel and driver packages with removepkg
be careful not to remove the kernel-headers package even if it looks like an old version
7)If you removed the old kernel you should upload your symlinks in /boot
first remove the old ones
rm /boot/vmlinuz /boot/System.map /boot/config
then simply reinstall the NEW kernel package and let it update the symlinks
