old kernals


I'm a newbie on linux red hat 7.3. I'm using grub as my boot loader. I'm also tri booting with win 98 and xp, When I boot up I'm showing two previous kernals I would like to remove from my boot screen,any sugestions are welcome, I've been into my grub conf. file but I don't know what to do from there, Thanks

Hi,

I'm also a newie in RedHat, but recently I had problems with the newest kernel "vmlinuz-2.4.18-17.7.x". Mostly related to the GUI. For example, when pushing the scrollbars, you don't see that the button is pressed and you have to press it several times in order to scroll the document. The buttons in the start menu have also a similar behavior and the Alarm Daemon doesn't tigger the tasks that you create. I don't know if it's just me, but I switch again to my old kernel "vmlinuz-2.4.18-3" and everything works fine.

Regards,
Josef.

there is no way whatsoever that the kernel can affect the actual operation of a graphical toolkit like qt or gtk. i'm so so so so so sure it's not possible. you must have some other error going on.

and can you please ask seperate questions in a seperate thread in future, your question has no relation to the original one.

Actually I think it does! He just was asking what kernel he should take and I just suggest not to take the new one. I think one have to take care about bugs (if there are) when choosing kernels. And about your answer, I didn't know that a kernel couldn't affect the interface. Anyway I just create another thread:

Or perhaps you were refering to my PS, which I erased. I just wanted to have a little bit of fun, but I guess it's not allowed here.
