I have a question! Since the last Sysupdate i have two installed Kernels. And i would like to remove it from the Sys.
How can I deinstall the older one of the two Kernels? I don't need it, or?

It is up to you what to do.
As root, you can use "uname -r" to check which one is running.
Than with "rpm -qa | grep kernel" you can check which ones are installed.
Removing can be done by using "yum remove <kernel-version>" (without the < and >).
