kernel update on Fedora - 14 - X86_64


Hello,

I have install windows XP and Fedora-14-X86_64 on dual boot, i want to run other OS on fedora by using Virtual machine. I have download and installed VirtaulBox-4.0.0 successfully but i cannot able to start it. I got error about Vbox driver not installed [error code:1908]. I have also installed DKMS package, but also didn't work.

Finally i found the actual problem was kernel not compatible with latest version of vbox and i need to update my kernel-headers. I also meet that solution by using command: yum install binutils gcc make patch libgomp glibc-headers glibc-devel kernel-headers kernel-devel and its work fine, this command download and install the kernel compatible VirtualBox-3.2.* and now its works fine.

But i problem is that when i booting my PC, it shows 3 options for entering OS rather then 2.
1. Fedora-14 (2.6.35.10.74.X86_64) [which is new one/updated after using that command]
2. Fedora-14 (2.6.35.6.45fc14.X86_64) [which is new one/updated after using that command]
3. Other [windows XP]

How can i delete that old version- No.2 ??

That isn't a problem. you have 2 compiled kernels on your system and both were added to grub. If you don't want both options on there you need to either edit your /boo/grub/menu.lst if its grub 1 if its grub 2 you need to edit some files in /etd/grub.d/

Otherwise don't really worry about it.

I would not delete it, I would comment it out... Just in case you find something quirky about that kernel build, that you don't like you can easily revert back...

No, it wont affect other applications unless they only run on that kernel. "should not be an issue"
Which is why I said to comment it out. =)

Those 2 entries in your grub.conf are just 2 different kernels you can select to load.
