Thread: Return to kernel 2.6.22

    Default Return to kernel 2.6.22

    Hello,
    Does anyone know if there is an easy (rpm-based?) way to return to kernel 2.6.22 on my openSuSE 11 system (2.6.25.5)?
    I have a driver for my modem that will only work on that kernel version.
    However, if possible, I'd like to retain the 2.6.25 kernel so I can boot either one from the GRUB menu.
    Thanks!

    Hi, I don't think u can downgrade to kernel 2.6.22 with a rpm but u can try compiling kernel 2.6.26 your self and see if that works better.

    If you are using Linuxant HSF driver, they already have a version for kernel 2.6.25.5-1.1-default Linuxant - Linux drivers for Conexant chipsets - HSF driver downloads for SuSE Linux x86 platform .

    Could it be as simple as selecting the installed kernel in Yast software management, open the version tab and reselecting a earlier version ?

    Unfortunately not- that will overwrite the existing kernel if done through YAST, I'm afraid.

    On the other hand, I think I'll just try a dual boot between SuSE 11 and 10.3.
