Comment 2 Ben Stringer 2004-07-27 22:55:55 EDT
I'm still seeing the reference to Red Hat in the latest FC1 series of

$ rpm -q --qf %{DESCRIPTION} kernel-2.4.22-1.2197.nptl
The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of
the Red Hat Linux operating system. The kernel handles the basic
functions of the operating system: memory allocation, process
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2004-07-28 03:51:34 EDT
You probably have specspo installed which overrides the descriptions
from the actual package.
Comment 4 Ben Stringer 2004-07-28 09:33:54 EDT
Thanks - I was not aware of specspo, but I do have it installed, as it
shipped with FC1, and I installed all packages.  I'll change this
bug's component to specspo.
Comment 5 John Thacker 2006-04-21 13:24:24 EDT
This is fixed in more recent specspo packages.
