Kernel Broken?

I had a rather large update last night, which included
Linux Kernel 64 3.2.10-3.fc16.x86_64. My Fedora will not boot on that kernel. The post gets to "Starting SSH" and goes no further than that. Reverting to the previous Kernel boots right up. Is this Kernel tainted? I have akmods nvidia installed, and everything works great on the old Kernel.

Re: Kernel Broken?

I just installed the 3.2.10-3.fc16.x86_64 kernel within the past half hour. It's working fine on my machine. I use the kmod-nvidia from rpmfusion, and apparently non of the rpmfusion-nonfree-updates mirror sites (at least the ones I hit) were reporting an available update to the kmod-nvidia module. I checked on the base repo and saw that the updated kmod-nvidia file(s) for the 3.2.10-3.fc16.x86_64 were there, so I temporarily enabled the baseurl= and disabled the mirrorlist= lines for that repo and was able to update to the new kernel along with the attendant kmod-nivida files.

If you're using akmod-nividia, that should have created a new kmod-nvidia file at boot up, so I don't really know why your updated kernel isn't booting. You could try reinstalling the new kernel and see if it goes any better this time:
yum reinstall kernel-3.2.10-3.fc16.x86_64

Re: Kernel Broken?

I had the same problem this morning after updating to 3.2.10-3.
The system just sat on the message "Grub Loading".

I ran "yum reinstall kernel-PAE-3.2.10-3.fc16.i686" and the system rebooted fine.

Thanks for the info.
