Hi again Dieter, I tried a direct email reply again, but the third time
was not charmed, it again bounced back to me after 25 tries! I will take
a look at my Apache James email server log files to see if I can
discover any thing going on. If it is OK with you, I will conduct a few
tests so you might get some test emails from me, just discard them.
I have downloaded the kernel rpm files from the link you sent me. I am
unable to tackle this project today, too many house projects to get done
but will try tomorrow if I can.. I did manage to use Carlos's
instructions to uninstall the kernel changes that we made to our
systems, so now I am back to a stock 15.1 system with whatever upgrades
that have been made.
I did run the rpm query you ask me to, about kernel packages installed
on my system. Here are the results -
darkstar:/home/marc/kernel # rpm -qa | grep
Thanks all so much!

please use the link above within 24 hours for download - otherwise I
have to re-upload all the stuff (this link is valid for 24 hours only).
I will provide a separate email with information on what to do next!

so here comes the "howto":
1.) open a console and become superuser. Change to the directory where the
downloaded kernel-*.rpm's from the download are.
2.) check which kernels are installed:
rpm -qa | grep "^kernel"
The result should look similar to this:
djunix:/home/src/kernel/Hamradio-addon # rpm -qa | grep "^kernel"
You can safely forget about the 28.44.1. The most recent one should be
If you have more kernel-* - files installed please let me know!
3.) now you can upgrade (still assuming that you are in the directory with the
rpm -Uhv kernel-default-4.12.14-lp188.8.131.52.x86_64.rpm
this will take a while, dracut will build a new initrd. Please reboot, this
ought to work smoothly (I very much hope though cannot guarantee!)
Then you should load the mkiss.ko - module by doing a modprobe mkiss as
superuser and you ought to be fine. You can find it in the directory
but you do not need to go there.
Hope everything runs fine! In case of _any_ deviation in the procedure
described above, _any_ error message please write an email. And, on top of
this, please retest my email address - I assume you accidentally made a typo
.... somewhere. I am not aware of one single person not being able to send
emails to me - but you :-(.
