Possible to exclude kernel upgrade?


My Dell Inspiron 5150 has no video after upgrading to kernel 3.7. It works with kernel 3.6. Expect it is a nouveau change but I am not sure.

I would prefer to stay with the 3.6 kernal until I can resolve the video issue. suggestions are welcome.
thank you

As per my knowledge, you need to delete the upgraded kernel manually and its entry in grub.conf file. Just try the below step.
1. Once we upgraded our kernel our old kernel will not be deleted , check inside /boot you can see two kernels.
2.Just boot by your old kernel and delete the new upgraded kernel manually.
3.Then delete the new initrd.img file.
4.Delete the new kernel's entry in /etc/grub.conf file.
5.Reboot your machine.


Note: Don't fear no data will get loss.
