Description of problem:
After installing kernel-source and kernel from rpm a bad symlink is made:

symlink that doesn't exist:  vmlinux-2.6.0-1.30 ->

made in /boot

Usually that link is /lib/modules/2.6.0-1.30/build/vmlinux

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install kernel-source-2.6.0-1.30
2. install kernel-2.6.0-1.30.i686

Actual Results:  incorrect symlink as:

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root      45 Jan  7 08:28 vmlinux-2.6.0-1.30 ->

Expected Results:  lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root      45 Jan  7 08:28
vmlinux-2.6.0-1.30 -> /lib/modules/2.6.0-1.30/build/vmlinux

Additional info:
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2004-01-07 10:37:58 EST
the vmlinux is actually there in the kernel-debuginfo package; this is
done because it is rather big and not useful for the vast majority of
people (it's only useful for when you want to debug your kernel) so it
would be a waste of space and bandwidth if it was part of the standard
kernel package and not a subpackage instead.
Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2004-01-19 04:49:13 EST
removed the symlink
