Reversing Kernel Levels

Hi
Can one remove everything with respect to a certain Kernel (including the kernel itself) and all package upgrades that have been done with it. Essentially reversing everything to a prior Kernel level ie. from 3.3.2-6 to 3.3.2-1, as an example.
Thanks for any assistance you can provide...

Re: Reversing Kernel Levels

I have a laptop that won't boot into any 3.x kernel I've tried. That means that I have to make sure that the old 2.x kernel from F14 doesn't get removed. I've learned that if I boot into that one kernel, I can do this as root:

yum remove kernel

and it will remove all installed kernels except for the running one. Try booting into the kernel you want kept and using yum to remove the rest, but don't use the -y option because you'll want to make sure yum is doing exactly what you want before confirming. (If it doesn't, you can always specify the kernel version on the yum command line.)

Re: Reversing Kernel Levels

Yum does have a history command which might help you to remove recent updates. See

Code:
man yum

Thank you I will try the downgrade. I assume that one can downgrade a Kernel as well as apps?
