Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 102031
kickstart package list ignores -kernel directive
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:56:45 EDT
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.
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.
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
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.
