Description Russell Johns 2003-07-28 16:13:55 EDT

Description of problem:

Since the posting of the kernel-smp-2.4.20-18.8 package (and subsequent updating
and rebooting) when new updates are released for other components the Redhat
network alert notification tool will add  the kernel-smp package to the list of
needed updates, showing matching versions for currently installed and available.
 it adds the kernel 
(plain vanilla non SMP ) package less frequently.

I would estimate that the kernel-smp package was displayed with about 2/3 of the
subsequent updates, the both the SMP and non smp kernels were displayed with
about half of subsequent updates .

the actual up2date functionality appears to work fine,  and does not list the
kernel as needing the update. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.wait for needed updates icon on gnome panel
2.view list of needed updates.
3.kernel-smp package will be erroneously displayed with other updates
