Scientific Linux 6 : How to upgrade to the latest SL 6.x

SL 6.1 has been released on July 28th , 2011.
Here’s an explanation of how to upgrade from SL 6.0 to SL 6.1.
# cat /etc/redhat-release
Scientific Linux release 6.0 (Carbon)

# yum --releasever=6.1 update –y

man yum
             Pretend the current release version is the given string. This is
             very useful when combined with --installroot. Note that with the
             default  upstream cachedir, of /var/cache/yum, using this option
             will corrupt your cache (and you can  use  $releasever  in  your
             cachedir configuration to stop this).

# ls /var/cache/yum/x86_64/6.*
sl  sl-security

sl  sl-security

# cat /etc/redhat-release
Scientific Linux release 6.1 (Carbon)

# uname -r
