Description of problem:
The %postinstall scriptlet fails while attempting to create a new
initrd image.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.6-1.422
mkinitrd-3.5.23-1
module-init-tools-3.0-0.pre10.1


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.6-1.422.i686.rpm
2. 
3.
  
Actual results:
# rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.6-1.422.i686.rpm
Preparing...               
########################################### [100%]
   1:kernel                
########################################### [100%]
memlock: Cannot allocate memory
Couldn't lock into memory, exiting.
mkinitrd failed


Expected results:
Should install normally.

Additional info:
2.6.6-1.414 (and earlier ones) worked fine
Comment 1 Kaj J. Niemi 2004-06-05 13:02:24 EDT
Executing the same commands manually results in the same thing.

# [ -x /sbin/new-kernel-pkg ] && /sbin/new-kernel-pkg --mkinitrd
--depmod --install 2.6.6-1.422
memlock: Cannot allocate memory
Couldn't lock into memory, exiting.
mkinitrd failed

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2004-06-05 13:03:34 EDT
this is actually a bug in 414 that you are running;
ulimit -l unlimited before the rpm -i will fix it
Comment 3 Kaj J. Niemi 2004-06-05 13:08:36 EDT
Yup, that one does it. Thanks. Closing as WORKSFORME.
