View Full Version : Will an updated kernel fix issues outside the kernel?

I am having an issue with my desktop pc. I just installed F10 KDE on it, and since I installed the OS, the kernel was updated. I cannot run the updated kernel. I think it is because of something Autoten did, which isn't saying much since Autoten can do so much.

My question is this. If my problem with the current kernel (there are two to choose from at boot) is causing the boot problem, or maybe there is another problem with something else that the current kernel cannot handle, Will a kernel update, whenever that comes out, resolve the issue? Because, I can boot into my previous kernel with no problems, and I don't want to take the hassle of reinstalling the OS.

Thanks,
theAdmiral

probably... i cnt say anything for sure:P

i personally never update my stuff unless i really have to.

personally, if your original kernel works, i would suggest you to change the setting in grub.conf to make your computer automatically boot into the old kernel, and just stick with it, if theres no problem with your computer with that kernel what so ever.
