The system appears to be hosed now so I can't give much more details.

etc etc  watch as all subsequent %post scripts fail and system becomes

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2004-07-23 11:48:04 EDT
2.4.21-15.EL is too old (before the execstack changes).
Comment 2 Joe Orton 2004-08-07 17:50:38 EDT
In case it wasn't clear, the trigger for this bug was:

1. take an AMD64 machine running the RHEL3 U2
2. subscribe it to the U3 beta channel
3. run up2date 
4. watch everything die

I can't see how this is a kernel issue.
Comment 3 Joe Orton 2004-08-10 18:50:14 EDT
Maybe someone in QA could confirm this bug, I don't particularly want
to try it and trash my hammer box again.
