CentOS 6 – Kernel 3 from CentOS 7 Repo?

user2933212 asked:

i want to run kernel 3 on centos 6. I found out, that it cant get installed over yum and i would need to compile it by my own.

My question: Could i use the centos 7 repo to install kernel 3.x from there? I cant find out the correct repo file for centos7, i would need to hardcode the variables but i dont know the value:

mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=os

Would i can install Kernel 3 from CentOS 7 repo?

My answer:


To get a recent long-term support kernel purpose-built for CentOS 6, consider using kernel-lt from ELrepo.
