Re: Replace kernel with newer rpm on install?


That sounds about right--was so simple it plumb eluded me. Will try tonight.

FC3 has a bug that keeps my megaraid driver from getting built, so I

If you havent got fedora installed then you can go ahead and install
it. get the kernel rpm from fc rawhide and install it. try booting
into it to see if it works.

Make sure that the bug in megaraid is known and confirm whether they
intend to release a update for fc3 itself

check this directory first


Bug 135484. FC3 new install won't find drives at all; install FC2, then update results in completion of update, but unbootable system. How would you go about installing the RPM on an unbootable system?

Well, boot an FC2 install image, go to a shell, and mount the hard drive; chroot, then install the RPM.
