Re: Problems with F7: Wrong kernel type, prelink pegs my CPU

Hello all,

Got two problems with my new install of F7.

I am using kernel-xen-2.6.20-2925.13.fc7. Problem: I *don't* want to use Xen, I want to use the other kernel on my machine:

kernel-2.6.22.1-27.fc7

How do I fix that? Why did it do that on install?

Well, I just fixed that. I don't know why it did it, but I edited grub.conf to put the non-Xen kernels first. Then I blew away the Xen kernels, and all is well with that.

The xen kernel is picked as default if you choose virtualization at install time. Removing the xen kernel should not hurt anything but the ability to use xen for virtual xen installs.




Second, a program called "prelink" pegs my CPU. Is it necessary, and if not, how do I turn it off besides doing a kill -9 on it?

Still need help with this one, though.


prelink will run heavy on newly installed systems but will then run with less to do on later runs. It optimizes how fast your programs start by optimizing libraries. You should just let it run.
