Fedora 11 update (213 kernel) messed up GNOME power management and custom effects

Hi,

I was installing few updates using yum, I did not pay attention to the fact that it was asking me to update the kernel as well to 213. Now all of a sudden my gnome power manager says configuration error on install and does not work any more (the battery icon) does not show .

Also I used to have Mac effects like fonts and icons which do not show up anymore. I tried going back to the old kernel 193(i think) which it gives me as an option in grub but the problem is just the same. I do not understand the reason for leaving this there if it is anyway going to mess it up.

Please let me know how I can undo the last yum update I did. I would like to revert back to my original setting.

Thanks

A little more explanation on what we are trying to accomplish here will be helpful.

I think I want to revert back to the old kernel 5.191 which did not have the problem the current one 6.213 seems to be having. Except now,since I did the update the old one is behaving the same way as the new one. so my original question was how do I unroll the yum update or go back to the un updated version.

Nokia, I tried your suggestion, it did not help. I'm not at all happy with this kernel , do not know how to get rid of it.

Try adding another user and stop blaming the kernel. It has nothing to do with your problems.

Reply only if you know the answer. Stop speculating saying it is NOT the kernel, you do not know that. I had everything working before the kernel update, standard debugging procedures dictates to revert back and see if it works again and that is what I'm trying to do, I'm trying to ask if any one knows how to do it without a reinstall.
