Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 5.0 and later
Linux x86-64
Linux x86

Goal

Mainly the kernel-uek-headers package is only useful when compiling other packages, it is useless in userspace application.

When uninstall kernel-uek-header package by yum, there are too many dependencies.  

# yum remove kernel-uek-headers-2.6.32-400.36.13.el5uek
