kernel problem anyone can help?
I tried today to update my kernel so i tried to use yum command:
after that I rebooted the server and it gone down.
[root@server ~]# yum list kernel
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Excluding Packages in global exclude list
kernel.i586 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 installed
kernel.i586 126.96.36.199-61.fc6 updates
kernel.i686 188.8.131.52-61.fc6 updates
i asked my datacenter to reboot my server and they told me the O/S is having a problem with kernel panic.
i told them to check grub.conf and try to boot again from the old kernel, and they successed this time.
and they told me: Right now the server is booting off the older kernel. The new kernel panics because it can't find any partitions.
anyone could advice me how can finish the kernel updates because really I'm still new to linux.
