    Fedora Core 3 Deleting the kernal update.


    I updated my kernal through "Up2date" and my computer stopped working. Someone on the forum told me that I shouldn't up date the kernal through the "Up2date" but that I should up date it manually.

    So I guess I don't want the updated version at all. Since the original kernal worked just fine.

    My question is how do I delete that updated kernal, so that I don't have to manually select the old one each time I boot.?

    The "choice" is located into a specific file

    either GRUB
    Code:
    /etc/grub.conf
    or LILO
    Code:
    /etc/lilo.conf
    you will be able to remove the other kernel choice in there.
    after, since the up2date must use rpm file, im pretty sure you can "Un-up2date" the process but my knowledge of this particular issue is limited so I can only suggest to "search" for the appropriate ways (to remove the update of the kernel)
