Hi to everyone
I prepared a system with Centos 5.1 with one LVM and two NICs for general purpose experiments in Linux (as a
). System run smoothly for several weeks and i could discover the strength of Linux day by day. Last week i decided to investigate the bridging procedure in order to bridge two networks that i had. I made yum install for all the required , i configure the bridge using brctl and everything worked fine. The problem begun when i decided to delete the bridge and roll back to the previous situation (two unbridged NICs). After bridge deletion, i made a reboot and from then the system responds "Error 15 : File not found". I understand that it cannot find the kernel and this is the strange thing. I search the disk and i couldn't find the kernel and the .img file in the /boot directory (or somewhere else). My current grub conf is
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,1)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Fedora (188.8.131.52-78.2.56.fc9.i686)
kernel /vmlinuz-184.108.40.206-78.2.56.fc9.i686 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
SO, my question is: Is there any way to restore the kernel files (even the original - i have the installation CDs) in order to have the system back to operation or is there any way to perform a re-installation without losing any data?
