I want to do a yum update from a given internal repo that includes a kernel that's older than the one I have installed. Yum refuses to do this update though: Transaction Check Error: package kernel-2.6.32-220.17.1.el6_foo.g636ddbf.x86_64 (which is newer than kernel-2.6.32-220.17.1.el6_foo.x86_64) is already installed and then errors out. How can I force yum to install the older kernel even though a supposedly newer one is already installed? I guess I'm looking for the yum equivalent of rpm's "--oldpackage" option. I know I could use "rpm -e" to remove kernel-2.6.32-220.17.1.el6_foo.g636ddbf.x86_64 before I do the yum update, but it's just too dangerous to remove your only known working kernel before installing a newer, as-of-yet, not known working kernel. Cheers and thanks in advance for any ideas, b.
