Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 116142
up2date hangs/stalls on trying to install latest kernel and kernel-source eratta
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:03:18 EDT
Description of problem:
Upon receiving notification of a new eratta kernel package, I made use
of the (graphical) up2date program to download and install
kernel-2.4.20-30.9 kernel and kernel-source packages. After
successfully downloading the packages, and clicking "forward", the
installation progress window just sat there, indicating no progress.
After I cancelled the process, I issued the appropriate "rpm -ivh"
command, and received a Failed dependencies message, saying that
/bin/sh was required by both kernel-2.4.20-30.9 and
Of course, /bin/sh does exist on the system, as a symlink to /bin/bash.
Issuing the rpm command with the --nodeps option got around the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download kernel-2.4.20-30.9.athlon.rpm
2. Issue "rpm -ivh kernel-2.4.20-30.9.athlon.rpm"
Failed dependencies error.
Successful installation of the kernel and kernel-source packages.
