Problem istalling new kernel
Posted 23 February 2005 - 03:26 AM
2.6.10-1.766 . I am currently running 2.6.9-1.667 . When the download was complete, it told me to reboot as soon as possible to test the new kernel, which I did, and did, and did.....several times to no avail. The 2.6.9-1.667 kernal is the one that is displayed as the machine starts. Is there something I need to do to install or intiate this update?

Fedora Core 3 (2.6.10-1.766)
Fedora Core 3 (2.6.9-1.667)
If you do not do anything, the orginal kernel will bot up by default. Just select and boot the 2.6.10 kernel to use it. If you wan to uninstall the original kernel, simply type this in the terminal.
rpm -e (kernel name)

Glad to hear you installed everything when you installed FC3. In general, when you do a new install you probably should reformat the drive. While it is possible to bypass formatting, at this point I would not recomend it.
I went out yesterday and picked up a really cool new case and motherboard. Not to bore you, but I got an IWill XP case and MB. Added 512 MB Ram, P4 2.4G, DVD Multi-format writer and Pinnacle Video capture card. Added an 80 GB HDD which was perfectly good, just was too small for most of my uses.
I installed FC3 (everything as I suggested to you). Sweet machine. Configured GnomeMeeting and already video phoned a new friend Brazil.
I really built this to investigate USB Wireless connectivity. This is causing me trouble.
I have not upgraded FC3 to newer kernel yet. Will do that after I finish writing this and let you know if I see the same problem.
By the way, FC2 has a problem which I think may be present in FC3. When using GRUB loader, the newer kernel is present in the available list, but does not load unless the user moves back to old kernel then back to new one.
Will post what I find out about FC3 a little later.

update rpm and then run the 'rpm -Uhv' manually?
For those of you who got the update via up2date, the kernel update rpm
should be on your disk already somewhere in /var (I forget exactly):
'find /var -name kernel\*.rpm'

It may have been a little extreme solution, but I deleted my partition that FC3 was on (in ms-dos fdisk), then re-created a partition, using "Partition Commander". This effectively destroyed all of the old installations, and then I re-installed FC3, using the custom installation, and selecting everything. When I went and got the kernel update, it installed the new kernel, and there it was when I rebooted in the grub boot menu. A little extreme, but I guess the end justifies the means.
P.S. Now the next question will be: did the cd burner start working again, and then there's the .........printer
