The following has be reported by IBM LTC:
Not all RPMs are the same between RHEL3 U1 upgrade and U2
Hardware Environment: z800
Software Environment: RHEL3 U1 upgraded to U2 via RHN
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL3 U1
2. Register with RHN
3. Run up2date -u to upgrade U1 from channel
4. rpm -qa > U1_upgrade
5. sort U1_upgrade
6. Install RHEL3 U2 on same image
7. Register with RHN
8. Run up2date -u to pull errata from channel
9. rpm -qa > U2_RPMS
10. sort U2_RPMS
11. diff U1_upgrade U2_RPMS
Packages should all be at same level.
Main concern is with gnome-panel and sendmail. Levels should be same.
Opening up Jay's reply for Bill at IBM to see:
gnome-panel appears to be one of the "extra" packages which needs to
jpackage-utils I suspect didn't get pulled in with the U1 install +
update, as there was nothing which required it, but the package is
indeed available in the RHEA-2004:146 errata.
kernel is nothing more than you have more than one kernel installed on
your system, so it's showing up in the 'rpm -qa' output.
laus is a brand new package, so that's why it's not getting pulled in
for a U1 install.
pam_passwdqc is a package which hasn't been pushed yet, but was
included in U2, so we'll get that fixed up today.
sendmail got pulled from the site as a result of a bug, so we'll be
pushing out a new one shortly.
tclx is in the same category as pam_passwdqc.
Current differences between the channels look like this to me:
Changes from 3AS-s390 -> 3AS-s390x
(rhel-s390-as-3 -> rhel-s390x-as-3):
MAKEDEV 3.3.8-1 3.3.12-1
comps 3AS-0.20040506 3AS-0.20040505
redhat-release 3AS-10.2 3AS-11.2
rpmdb-redhat 3-0.20040506 3-0.20040505
There have been some additional rpm package pushes after U2 release
as well as some further security updates.
I'll close this report now, please re-open if new problems come up.
