Install older kernel

When I tried to install a kernel from the fc5 planetccrma repos it was found to be older than the one I currently have installed, thus giving me a Transaction Check Error with yum. How do I get this older kernel to install? Would I have to start with a fresh FC5 install? I currently have 2.6.16-1.2096_FC5 installed and the planetccrma kernel I wish to install is: 2.6.16-1.2080.13.rrt.rhfc5.ccrma.

Download the rpm from thier site and from a terminal session where it is stored type ' rpm -ivh 2.6.16*.rpm --test ' and see it errors out. Post errors if any. If no issues the remove the --test option and run the command. It needs to be run as root to install but to test it is not needed.

Ok, I am getting the same thing. This is the same as the yum error message as I recall.

rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.16-1.2080.13.rrt.rhfc5.ccrma.i686.rpmrpm -ivh kernel-2.6.16-1.2080.13.rrt.rhfc5.ccrma.i686.rpm
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
        package kernel-2.6.16-1.2096_FC5 (which is newer than kernel-2.6.16-1.2080.13.rrt.rhfc5.ccrma) is already installed

This might be a time for using the '--force' option: http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm/s1-rpm-in...l-options.html

I got it to work using the --oldpackage switch. Don't know if that's correct but it seems to have worked!
