http://forums.fedoraforum.org – so i am building a series of custom kernels... for one of them i am using a kernel that is older than my currently installed ones. i am using rpm to install this kernel and it will not install, period. does anybody know a work around, i don't get why i can't install this....what does it matter that i am installing an older kernel??? and why is fedora/rpm designed to not let me do this??? Code: [ninez@Ninez zen-stable]$ sudo rpm -ivh '/home/ninez/rpmbuild/RPMS/i386/kernel-2.6.32zen6-1.i386.rpm' Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]         package kernel-2.6.32zen7-1.i386 (which is newer than kernel-2.6.32zen6-1.i386) is already installed         package kernel-2.6.33ck1-1.i386 (which is newer than kernel-2.6.32zen6-1.i386) is already installed         package kernel-2.6.33rc7zen1-1.i386 (which is newer than kernel-2.6.32zen6-1.i386) is already installed there should be an easy way to get around this, but i haven't figured it out yet. i've googled around, no luck. i bounce between kernel versions all the time without problems on my system, so why is rpm setup for strict versions on a kernel??? and is there no way around this, and i just have to delete all three of those kernels, i don't really want to. 2 of them are awesome and i shouldn't have to build them again, that would be complete crap! and i wouldn't have this problem on my debian setup, so why fedora?? (i generally think fedora is better) anyone got a fix??? thanx in advance!! :) (HowTos)
