I accidently upgraded the kernel package (rpm -Fvh *.rpm in a directory containing a newer kernel package). Now all my previous kernels are gone. The kernel that is installed now is an i386 kernel, not an i686 kernel like prefer.
I can't remove the kernel package (can I?) and install the correct one. What's the safest and best way to install the latest i686 kernel. Should I use the force, replacepkgs, replacefiles options or a combination of them?
I suggest none of them. The safest way is to install (rpm -ivh) a different kernel (such as an old kernel or an smp kernel), reboot to this kernel, and then uninstall (rpm -e) the wrong kernel and install the right one.
