    problems with linux kernel


    I updated my computer with the update thing and now i have 2 kernels installed and neither one's the one i want installed...would it be possible to remove those kernels and install the kernel i want while the computer is running, or would i have to do it from the command prompt? If anyone knows about this kinda thing, please write and let me know if i can do it while the computer is running from drakconf.

    You should be able to load a new kernel from one of your repos. This doesn't take effect until you reboot.
