Description of problem:
If I have multiple kernels installed:
$ rpm -qa | grep kernel
then up2date GUI believes that I'm behind the times:
[newest] Version 2.6.3-2.1.253 Old Version 2.6.2-1.81.perfctr2.6.5
even though I do have the latest installed, and in fact am running it:
$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.3-2.1.253.jreiser (jreiser@fc2test1) (gcc version
3.3.3 20040216 (Red Hat Linux 3.3.3-2.1)) #1 Sat Mar 13 17:50:49 PST 2004
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install multiple kernel versions.
2. Click on red '!' rhn-applet in panel, Forward to "confirm skip of
kernels" window, look at Available/Old versions.
Actual Results: It seems like the oldest installed kernel is the one
that is picked for comparison with the newest available kernel.
Expected Results: The newest installed kernel should be compared with
the newest available kernel.
