Hi,

Thanks for the quick replay.
During the installation, is the kernel modified?
If so can I re modify it?

Regards,
Ronen.

I don't think its *quite* that cut and dried I'm afraid.

If you install the PSP completely using the supplied install script, it will patch the QLA and e1000 drivers. That will modify the associated modules which the system relies on for these components. You don't want to just remove these as it will stop the relevant components from working.

You can, however, remove the extras like SMH and HPASM by using rpm to remove them. Note that modifications to configuration files (like snmp.conf) may not be restored (but you *might* be lucky and find that the original is still available - normally renamed with a .rpmsave extension or similar).

Kind of late for a reply, but, to expand on the comment above - the current PSPs do a HORRIBLE job of backing up the stock drivers (as in they don't) - so - if you remove the support pack be sure to FORCE your current kernel back in if you use tg3 or e1xxx drivers!! I have also noticed inconsistency in the fibre drivers, so double check that as well....

Hello,

So what is the conclusion of this case? I do want to uninstall PSP too since my bonding ethernet has many problem since installing PSP.

It may sound like bad news, but removing individual rpm is the only safe way of removing the s/w. The risks have already been mentioned. What may come as a real bad news is: if you have too much trouble to keep the PSPs, backup data, re-install OS.
