Problem with kernel package.

I am running Fedora 15 on a second machine.

I had trouble booting Linux and I found that while grub started off trying to boot vmlinuz-2.6.43, I had to backtrack to vmlinuz-2.6.42 in order to boot.
rpm -qa | grep kernel
shows both kernel packages installed and
rpm -ql ...
shows the newer kernel should be in /boot, but it isn't. Apparentely, the kernel upgrade failed to install those files in /boot but it did change grub.conf. How might that have happened?

And what should I do about it? Should I try to reinstall that kernel package? Of should I just wait for a kernel upgrade? Or is Fedora 15 past updating, in which case, I guess I should upgrade to Fedora 16 or 17.

I am a bit reluctant to upgrade to Fedora 17 since when I did that with my main machine, EasyBCD stopped working for dual booting, and I still haven't completely resolved that problem.

Re: Problem with kernel package.

Try to remove the broken kernel and then reinstall it or just keep using the old kernel.

Fedora 15 is EOL now and I'm not sure if there will be any more kernel updates.
