Thread: Can one go back to a 10.0 kernel?

    Default Can one go back to a 10.0 kernel?

    I like most of the aspects of 11.0 but have some security (disk encryption) software that only runs on 2.6.16.21-0.8 from a 10.0 Enterprise system that I dislike (No WiFi among other things). Is there any way to have both kernels?

    I think I read somewhere that you can boot up to 8 various kernels. Here is a howto I wrote some time ago that boots 2 kernels safely (not the kernel I talk of, the process): Update To Jengelh's Kernel-2.6.17-7 Howto - Page 2 - openSUSE Forums

    Why not add your wireless do "lspci" and get the chipset, search the fourm for it for info.

    get the driver src.rpm and rebuild it with "rpmbuild --rebuild /packagename"

    your rpms will be in /usr/src/packages/RPMS/x86_64 (or i386)

    Install driver & kernel module with Yast & reboot; configure

    You can install as many kernels as you want, but only one of them can
    run at a time. So if your disk encryption runs only on 2.6.16 but your
    WiFi only on 2.6.25 you won't be able to use disk encryption and WiFi
    at the same time.

    Also, I don't know what the SLES10 kernel package will do to your 11.0
    system if you install it with rpm. It might delete the 11.0 kernel
    thinking it was to replace it. It might mess up your GRUB configuration
    trying to insert itself there. You'd better unpack the rpm file in a
    temporary location and manually move the files to their destinations
    and edit /boot/grub/menu.lst to taste.
