Description Diego 2004-04-23 20:10:50 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040312

Description of problem:
I installed FC2 (1.91) and then updated throught RPM's my kernel to
the one suggested by up2date and after doing the kernel-sources
install it erased my old kernel in /boot and did not update
/etc/grub.conf correctly.

It finished the install with grubby sending a message that a template
could not be found. 

I tried installing with enforcing and without enforcing and both times
the same result.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC2 1.91
2. up2date --install kernel kernel-source kernel-utils
3. reboot

Actual Results:  Couldn't log to the machine

Expected Results:  Both new and old kernels installed

Additional info:

I tried on a 920CA Presario laptop with nothing extra

this is odd but I doubt it's caused by kernel-source; more likely
up2date did an rpm -U equivalent on the kernel...

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

NEEDINFO_ENG has been deprecated in favor of NEEDINFO or ASSIGNED. Changing
status to ASSIGNED for ENG review.

up2date is no longer shipped with Fedora Core; it's functionality 
has been replaced by pup, found in the pirut package.  The only fixes 
likely to be made to up2date in RedHat Linux and earlier Fedora Core 
versions are security fixes by Fedora Legacy.  This does not seem to 
be a security bug, so I'm closing it.

If the problem is appropriate to RHEL and occurs to a user there, it 
can be filed as such.
