On one of our development systems the Internet quit working after a power

We know that the realtech driver for chip set RTL 8111/8168B works with SL
5.4 -> 5.10.  The problem is with SL 6.1 - 6.5.  Same box same hardware.

A long time ago we installed a special kernel from ELRepo.org to fix the
problem with SL 6.4.

SL 6.4 later was updated to SL 6.5 and still no Ethernet -

ifconfig shows that it can receive but not transmit as before.

Would it be appropriate to reinstall the
kernel-lt-3.10.32-1.el6.elrepo.x86_64.rpm     date  28 Feb. 14
to fix the problem.

Second question: How do you turn automatic updates OFF.

You can boot with the prior kernel to verify that it is a newer kernel that caused the net to not work. It should still be on your system.
