    Urpmi Kernel-source


    kk ah first i typed urpmi kernel-source it gave me a list of packages to install, but i accidentally chose the wrong package, and 50% thur thr download i just exited terminal hoping it would not install lol, but now i type in urpmi kernel-source it says "the packages are already installed the following package names were assumed: kernel-multimedia-source-stripped-2.6.17.13-3mdv
    yeah soo my version of mandriva 2007 is 2.6.17-5mdv ------ so i believe that i installed or downloaded the wrong package, is it going to make a difference? and can i get rid of it and download the right one,???

    oh and i type in $ rpm -qa | grep -i kernel-source it says kernel-source-stripped-2.6.17.6mdv-1-1mdv2007.0 <<(this was the one installed by accident) and when i type name -r i get 2.6.17-5mdv sooooo yeah same question as above
