kernel update repair


While I was updating my computer yesterday, it was taking too long so I control-C'ed it. That was a mistake; when I rebooted I got a kernel panic. It was easy to fix, I just went back to a previous kernel that I knew was working.

This morning, Feb. 13, I think that I corrected it with yum-complete-transaction. I cannot be sure, but yum-complete-transaction went to completion and everything seemed OK. But it was a completed ransaction. A fix on a error from the previous day.

So how can I check this? How can I make sure all is ok? I guess I could uninstall and reinstall the new kernel, but it had so many depdencies that I am unsure of where to begin. So is there an easier way?

Thanks,

jyunker

I've had something similar happen.

Using the previous kernel...

I just went to /boot and deleted each file relating to the latest kernel. (the suspect one)
I then rebooted and again picked the previous kernel to boot from, (I didn't run update-grub so the suspect one was still mentioned) went to the system updater which found the deleted kernel, then re-installed it.

Worked for me!

Play Bonny!
