This is a consequence of rhgb.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2003-10-21 16:03:37 EDT
I believe this is fixed now - does this still happen if you are fully up to date?
Comment 3 petrosyan 2003-10-22 13:01:31 EDT
this bug still happens in fully up2date rawhide system.
Comment 4 Behdad Esfahbod 2003-11-05 08:55:58 EST
Not for me.  Just when running a 2.6 kernel.
Comment 5 petrosyan 2003-11-06 12:54:20 EST
this bug indeed has been fixed in Fedora Core 1 and it should be closed
