Today the kernel was updated to 3.5.0-2. However, this has caused a breakage in compiling the VirtualBox Guest Additions.
So, I wanted to go back to 3.4.6-2 and downgrade kernel-headers.
I was under the impression that "yum downgrade" would result in going back on version. But, the downgrade resulted in installing kernel-headers-3.3.4-5 and I could not find the kernel-headers-3.4.6-2 package anywhere.
I don't think this is "normal" but don't know the best wait to report the problem. Of course I'll report the breakage in 3.5.0-2 but how about the missing kernel-headers-3.4.6-2 ?

When I boot from the fc17 install DVD, I am not able to get the
installer to run in gui or text mode. But I can log in as root by
hitting ctl-alt-f3. Is there a way to run the installer from there?
I have 3 machines:
1) Fedora 16 i686
2) Fedora 16 x86_64
3) Fedora 17 x86_64
All forced fallback mode ON
Only one 1) works fine regarding with the extensions
It means that I can "add to panel" and select
in a list of options starting with Character panel, Clock, CPU
Frequency Scaling Factor, ... ,System Monitor,
The 2 other ones, I just cannot do it, For example, Character panel,
CPU Frequency Scaling Factor, System Monitor options are missing.
I have the impression that I installed the same relevant packages on
all the 3 machines:
on 2) (and 3))
Thus, I do not know how to debug the issues.
Would you help?

I'm trying to track down kernel versions that caused a few regressions
on my servers.
A recent one is somewhere between 3.4.2-1.fc16 and 3.4.6-1.fc16, and
another one somewhere between 18.104.22.168-26.rc1.fc15 and 22.214.171.124-1.fc15
Is there a place where I can see a list of Fedora's kernel revisions, or
better yet - be able to download them to try them out?
I currently try to install german langpacks to a fresh F17, but - even
if this should be a really simple task - failed so far:
- system-config-language relies on a feature no longer present, to
- yum langpacks plugin only applies, when installing new packages
Is there any way to tell the yum langpacks plugin to fetch language
packages for already installed RPMs?
Or is there maybe an easier way to add support for an additional
language after installation?
Thank you in advance, Clemens
I have ben using junk mail processing in evolution since it appeared in
RedHat and/or Fedora Linux. I have never before been unable to enable
junk mail processing. But now in F17 it is not working for me. Below are
the instructions from the evolution help to enable Junk mail
But when I right click on a message there is no Junk Mail Settings
option. Any ideas out there other than ask the evolution list which I
will do if I get frustrated enough?
Enabling or Disabling Your Junk Mail List
1. Right-click on a message and select the Junk Mail
2. Specify whether you wish to Enable or Disable junk mail
3. Click on the OK button.

When you go to "System Settings->File Associations" AbiWord is at the top of the list of "Application Preference Order"?
I can recreate your issue if I move Firefox to the top and hit apply.
If AbiWord is a the top. Why not move it, hit Apply, then move it back, and hit Apply.
