  1. 2.6.12-1.1372 won't boot - 2.6.11-1.35 works fine..

    Hey all,

    Up2date recently gave me a kernel upgrade and I accepted it, and now I
    can't boot unless I back off a version. It gets to the "Initializing
    Hardware" point of booting and just hangs. It looks to be about the time
    my SCSI hardware is hit, but that may just be the only external symptom I
    can see. Ideas?

    It's 3:30, why aren't you at work?
    I.. I didn't feel like it.

    Uninstall rpm -e kernel-2.6.12-1.1372 then reinstall.

    Preferably with "yum update" instead of up2date you'll feel better
    after using yum.
