Exclamation yum kernel install - ???


I really did it this time:
I set yum to update hal with the -y flag and when I came back I saw it had installed a new kernel as a dependancy (2.6.1-1.770_fc3)
I have no idea what this does to my system and I simply daren't reboot in case I won't be able to get back into my system again.

Any help is appreciated!

Well. That's the current kernel available via RPM. IT's the kernel I have on my other Fedora Core 3 system and it's running smoothly. The only thing that may be an issue is the video driver. You may have to reinstall it. On my system I never loaded the external ATI driver from ati.com so the system didn't need the video driver installed again.

Well yes, I guessed s much,, but does that mean that if I do either

yum update kernel
or download the package and do
rpm -ivh kernel********
the next time I reboot grub will have been updated to reflect the new kernel and my systemn will boot from it?

You should still have the option to boot with the previous kernel as well. Check your grub.conf and you should see multiple entries for the linux kernel, with the latest on top.
