    Easy way downgarding from release 5.7 to 5.5


    Hi,

    I have a server that was originally installed with
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.5

    And was upgraded using yum update to :
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.7

    Is there a way to downgrade all packages that were updated during this update??
    Meaning going back to release 5.5


    Thanks!

    Look at /var/log/yum.log, which packages were updated.
    Then one could try to
    yum downgrade <PACKAGES>

    That said,
    - why would you want this?
    - it is *definitely* not recommended to to so.
    Downgrade paths might have side effects, and in general one wants an updated system.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
