User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686) Gecko/20030701 Galeon/1.3.7

Description of problem:
After working around bug 105015 (by adding a Provides line to to the modutils
spec and rebuilding), I installed the kernel package available at 


(I have also upgraded the associated packages provided there, including mkinitrd).

rpm produced the following output:

FATAL: Could not open '/boot/System.map-2.6.0-0.test5.1.43': No such file or
No dep file found for kernel 2.6.0-0.test5.1.43
mkinitrd failed
error: %post(kernel-2.6.0-0.test5.1.43) scriptlet failed, exit status 1

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. download the packages from http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/2.5/RPMS.kernel/
2. upgrade the non-kernel packages
3. install the appropriate kernel package

I should have said - I'm performing these steps on a machine running a "fairly
stock" install of RH 9.
Comment 2 Dan Berger 2003-09-29 21:17:59 EDT
this seems to be fixed with the latest test kernel rpms, closing.
