I'm a new user of fedora. I installed fedora 23 and on the first startup of fedora these 2 lines appeared

  • Fedora (4.2.3-300. fc23.x86_64) 23 (Workstation Edition)
  • Fedora (0-rescue-c487c8657d53417491468619ef2b60a) 23 (Workstation Edition)

Now these 4 lines appear on every startup

  • Fedora (4.4.3-300. fc23.x86_64) 23 (Workstation Edition)
  • Fedora (4.4.2-301. fc23.x86_64) 23 (Workstation Edition)
  • Fedora (4.2.3-300. fc23.x86_64) 23 (Workstation Edition)
  • Fedora (0-rescue-c487c8657d53417491468619ef2b60a) 23 (Workstation Edition)

So what is the problem and how I fix it?

Thanks in advance

That is normal, when you start up the first time it had 2 kernel version, after the update it installed more kernel versions, it will always strart with the most recent one, but if for some reason that fail you can select the others at boot time to boot with it. It is a falback option you have in case a new kernel do not work on your machine. Something that may happen when you install some custom kernel module, like Nvidia or Broadcom cards, that have propietary drivers. That looks like it is not your case.
