Angry Downgrading Mandrake 10 kernel to kernel-2.4.22.10mdk-1-1mdk


I am VERY frustrated and not liking Linux very much at the moment.

I have been trying to get my Lucent winmodem working with Mandrake 10 Beta 2 for about 2 months with no luck. I have tried every driver site and download I can get my hands on. I have installed god knows how many things I am about ready to chuck it in.

Is it possible to revert the kernel back to 2.4.22 so I can use my tried and trusted ltmodem drivers that work with every distro I have every played around with?

XP is starting to look good again.........may I burn in hell.

Install the rpm for the other kernel and then add it to lilo or grub (maybe this is automatic?). You can then select on boot.

Thanks colnago. Yeah I think you're right.......I've been searching all day now (hope work hasn't been monitoring my internet activity ) and it would appear, as with Fedora it adds another boot option.

Cheers

Try this. There's no need to go back to kernel 2.4.xx just to use the Lucent Winmodem.

Edit: Hmm.. it seems you did post in that thread earlier. Did you follow the instructions provided within that thread? If something went wrong, please post followup questions to that thread.
