Description Damian Menscher 2003-08-09 03:04:54 UTC
Description of problem:
Installing to a SMP machine, I only want the kernel-smp package installed (and
not the kernel package).  This is to control the boot-order in grub, so up2date
doesn't change it on me, etc.

I install from a kickstart file, and added the directive
to remove the UP kernel.  It got installed anyway.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.deselect kernel in kickstart file
2.rpm -qa | grep kernel

Actual Results:  I end up with both SMP and UP kernels installed.

Expected Results:  Should have only the SMP kernel.

Additional info:

/root/install.log shows:
Installing kernel-2.4.20-8.
Installing kernel-smp-2.4.20-8.
Installing kernel-pcmcia-cs-3.1.31-13.
Installing kernel-source-2.4.20-8.

A workaround is to do an rpm -e kernel in your postinstall script.

Fixed in CVS to not unilaterally select "kernel" if we've selected another
kernel package.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2006-04-24 18:05:34 UTC
Mass-closing lots of old bugs which are in MODIFIED (and thus presumed to be
fixed).  If any of these are still a problem, please reopen or file a new bug
against the release which they're occurring in so they can be properly tracked.
