kernel-desktop586-2.6.27.4-2mnb-1-1mnb2

looks like a 2009.0 kernel, can you not boot that?

 

Also you installed from the live CD so you have the desktop586 kernel which only sees 880MBs of your RAM so you should install kernel-desktop-latest which will pull in the latest desktop kernel that will see all your Ram.

i only have desktop586 2.6.24.4-1mnb and desktop586 2.6.24.7-1mnb as extra boot options in my /grub/menu.lst,

 

i installed 2008.1 from a live cd, but had a lock-up problem so i upgraded via easyurpmi and a terminal and ran the update command after the upgrade,

 

everything else seems to be running ok (apart from no compiz for a while but i changed the driver)

As I said install kernel-desktop-latest, as root
urpmi kernel-desktop-latest

ran this and it downloaded the package, it installed ok,

i re-booted but still had the same options in my grub screen, same desktop and same info in sysinfo,

 

i tried re-enabling virtualbox (just to check) and got the same message about 'spawning session' then it just hangs and i have to kill it,

 

thanks for your help so far
