Description of problem:
It would be great to see the web interface for RHN have some type of
notification when viewing the systems on which need a reboot for kernel updates.
This feature would be very useful when combined with the "auto updates"
feature- if the machine has been updating itself, we don't want it to have to
reboot itself, but rather inform admins of that status - "Needs rebooted".
Maybe the "kernel version" line in the system details could be high-lighted
__RED__ noting the kernel running is old, compared with the rpm version
installed. I understand this might be annoying if customers were booting a
custom kernel- but perhaps the rhnsd would be able to determine this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. load OS
2. update kernel/misc rpms via RHN
3. notice machine is up to date, running the old kernel version
Actual Results: Sure, the machine is up to date, but only after a reboot.
Expected Results: Perhaps a highlighted "kernel version" in system details, or
a highlighted notice under the general systems tab would be super.
