I'm currently using Kernel 4.5.6, on which I got a problem to get my second monitor (xrandr does not see it). I have still 4.3.5, on which it works fine.

In order to try to figure our what has changed, I would like to downgrade to an older version (4.4.9) on which I know the pb already appeared and that I just removed by mistake.

To do this, I'm running:

$ sudo dnf downgrade kernel-core-4.4.9

But it seems it's not there anymore on the repo.

Is there any mean to retreive an old kernel's version ?
