Description David Woodhouse 2004-08-11 06:20:23 EDT
When upgrading, anaconda removed my old kernel. The new kernel did not
boot due to mkinitrd problems (now fixed).

This is violating the oft-repeated advice to _NEVER_ 'rpm -U' a kernel
package. And it made my system not boot.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-08-11 11:34:11 EDT
An anaconda upgrade always has and always will upgrade kernels. 
Userspace is regularly depending on features being present in "new
enough" kernels and leaving an older kernel causes other strange and
unique breakage.
