Re: kernel whoops

So, I unwittingly installed the 2.6 test kernel from arjan's directory
and out of habit used the rpm -Uvh command.  I had wanted to install it
as a test not to replace.  I have not rebooted and am still running the
2.4 kernel.  Is this what I need to do to get back in shape?

rpm -Uvh --oldpackage kernel-2.4.21-20.1.2024.2.1.nptl.athlon.rpm
rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.0-0.test1.1.26.athlon.rpm

Will I be back to where I would have been in the first place?



Really all you need is


rpm -ivh --oldpackage kernel-2.4.21-20.1.2024.2.1.nptl.athlon.rpm


You should make sure you have valid entries in grub.conf, or lilo.conf.
