Description of problem:
The kernel-unsupported package does not depend on its matching kernel
eg: kernel-unsupported-2.4.21-9.EL should depend on kernel-2.4.21-9.EL
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have older kernel installed (eg: kernel-22.214.171.124-EL)
2. up2date kernel-unsupported
Actual Results: kernel-unsupported for 2.4.21-9-EL will be installed
but not kernel-2.4.21-9-EL
Expected Results: both kernel and kernel-unsupported should be
installed by up2date
thisis not a bug since you need to be able to install
kernel-unsupported before kernel; and a dependency as you propose
Why would kernel-unsupported need to be loaded before kernel?
kernel-unsupported without its matching kernel package is useless.
because you can have drivers that need to go into the initrd that gets
made in the %post of the main kernel package.
