Linux mobian 5.11-sunxi64 -> GREAT! ... or not?

Hi zborgerd,

i had the 5.10 kernel package still installed.
So it was easy done, by editing the file in /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf to switch back.

If you got different kernel versions installed on your system, they are listed in extlinux.conf and there's a default setting at the beginning.
You need to modfiy the default setting to point at the kernel you'd like to start.

Anyway it should be possible to re-install 5.10 kernel again:

sudo apt-get install linux-image-5.10-sunxi64

Afterwards check the file extlinux.conf, as mentioned above...
If you have further questions don't hesitate.
