if you are having trouble with installing fedora specific software, pls consider posting in Fedora.

Now is that the only error you are getting? And my memory banks are low, is this an attempt to solve your previous video playing issue?

2) assuming its unrelated....independent....what kernel have you got?

post the name of the files in /boot/ pls

assuming you can boot up this Fedora...why is a kernel (vmlinuz) doing in lost and found....did you have a power problem or a freeze problem and so you lost power or did a warm reset?

2) anyhow...it appears your kernel is old relative to the new package.

go into your package manager and install a kernel equal or higher in number to 2.6.23.9-85_0.99

see how yours is 2.26.23.1 something versus 2.26.23.9

ignoring my australian mirror it looks like there is no specific laptap kernel for F8 so you may need
kernel-headers-2.6.23.9-85.fc8.i386.rpm 20-Dec-2007 05:07 674K

if you compile kernels try the big one
kernel-2.6.23.9-85.fc8.i686.rpm 20-Dec-2007 05:03 16M

assuming you are running the 32 bit system and not 64

source
http://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/f...pdates/8/i386/

but your package manager may want other packages, I do not use F8 myself
