evrgreen zypper up and my server don't boot anymore...

oups… I use evergreen for 11.1 on a hosted server. I just did a “zypper up” and I can’t boot anymore!

I still have access to the server through a recovery system a bit like the openSUSE rescue.

But my main mail server in on this machine, so I don’t have anymore access to the evergreen mailing list (of course I can subscribe from gmail of else, but i try first here).

I can reinstall from my hosting provider, but I just missed the point that this reinstall is not from 11.1 but to 11.4, and that mean I have to reconfigure most of my service, and this takes time.

is there a way I can reinstall original 11.1 base? may I stop the evergreen repo, do zypper up and be undergraded?

important notice: this server use a provider kernel and lilo, not the evergreen kernel. I now have a 2.6.38 kernel next time I will try simply issuing “lilo”.


issuing lilo is not enough… will try to undergrade
