   That didn't do it.  It still only lists:

       <root lilpusher:/var/lib/rpm> rpm -qa | grep kernel
        kernel-2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.i686
        kernel-devel-2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.i686
        kernel-headers-2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.i386
        kerneloops-0.12-1.fc10.i386
        kernel-firmware-2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.noarch
       <root lilpusher:/var/lib/rpm>

But, grub.conf still lists 2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i586 as an available kernel. It's also still in /boot/ :

       <root lilpusher:/var/lib/rpm> ls -l /boot/   (columns trimmed a bit)

        2571120 2008-12-16 12:55 vmlinuz-2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i586*

   And looking in /usr/src/kernels/ I see:

       <root lilpusher:/usr/src/kernels> ls -al
           4096 2009-03-08 17:44 2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.i686/
           4096 2009-01-06 13:30 2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i586/

   /lib/modules/ also lists:

       <root lilpusher:/lib/modules> ls -al
           4096 2009-03-08 17:47 2.6.27.19-170.2.35.fc10.i686/
           4096 2009-01-06 13:31 2.6.27.9-159.fc10.i586/


Yet, I can't remove it. As I mentioned before, this kernel either got installed when the system was first build, or through a subsequent yum update run afterwards.

   Waiting for more suggestions.
