I was updating Fedora 19 new kernel but somehow machine got restarted (because of power problem). The new kernel did not update properly. Now I can not even boot in that kernel (I can boot in the older one). How do I remove this new kernel entry and re-install the kernel

Hi

First find out all installed kernel version with following command:

rpm -qa | grep kernel

Output:

kernel-PAE-3.10.10-200.fc19.i686

kernel-PAE-3.10.11-200.fc19.i686

abrt-addon-kerneloops-2.1.7-1.fc19.i686

kernel-PAE-3.10.9-200.fc19.i686

libreport-plugin-kerneloops-2.1.7-1.fc19.i686

I've total 3 different kernel installed. To remove kernel-PAE-3.10.10-200.fc19.i686 type command:

rpm -vv -e kernel-PAE-3.10.10-200.fc19.i686

Or, use "yum remove kernel-PAE-3.10.10-200.fc19.i686" as root, without the quotes. This will prevent yum from complaining that the database has been altered outside of yum. Either way will work. Just remember to substitute the kernel that's giving you trouble into whichever command you use.
