    Smile [SOLVED] kernel related query


    hi !
    i m using fc.7
    my system shows following ( i think the following cmd gives the found kernel installed in system. is it not?)

    [root@localhost reishi]# rpm -qa | grep -i kernel
    kernel-devel-2.6.23.14-60.fc7
    kernel-devel-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7
    kernel-2.6.23.14-60.fc7
    kernel-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7
    kernel-headers-2.6.23.14-60.fc7


    so
    is there any need to uninstall any of them or they are just good.
    Sorry, Linux is not my passion .

    Two kernel versions have been installed in your system and if newer kernel ( 2.6.23 ) is working properly, you can remove earlier version kernel 2.6.21-1.
    Execute this
    Code:
    su -
    rpm -e kernel-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7
    Make sure to boot up 2.6.23 kernel while removing other.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Latest version 2.6.23 should be work better that earlier. If you havn't any problem with newer then un-install earlier.
