So, I'm trying to move from 2.6.15 to 2.6.17 in order to get ivtv working. I accidentally uninstall all of my kernels and now my installation won't boot. Is there any way short of completely reinstalling to fix this?
Here's what I did:
yum remove kernel-2.6* #here's where I deleted all of my kernels :-(
yum install kernel #here's where I tried to reinstall one of them
It then loaded up 2.6.17 (i thought), but when I boot, it tells me that the file isn't found for the kernel 2.6.15. Then, it reboots and does it again.
Quick specs for the machine (don't think it's necessary, but you can never tell):
Via EPIA m10000 (i386 architecture)
onboard video, lan, etc.
Hauppauge PVR-150 card.
E-IDE Seagate HD at 320 GB
512 MB RAM
It's frustrating because I'd just finished updating everything I thought, but when I tried to load ivtv for the PVR card, it told me it hadn't updated the kernel. This was after reboot, so I thought the new kernel should have been in there. Oh well.
Any help appreciated.
