Error 16 Inconsistent File Structure

Last kernel update ( to upon reboot get error 16 inconsistent file structure. Grub menu allows selection of older kernel and it boots properly. Usually when things go bad just reinstall. This problem seems to be repairable. I don't know how though any suggestions ?

Thanks gwh480

Re: Error 16 Inconsistent File Structure

Downloading files is not an error free process. You might have downloaded a corrupt file. You might have to download the kernel upgrade package and install it manually.

Here are links to one mirror with the kernel upgrade you are using:

i586 kernel

i686 kernel
You can install an rpm using

# rpm -Uvh <filename>
