Description Mike MacCana 2005-02-09 18:46:56 EST
Description of problem:
%post for GFS-modules doesn't update the module dependencies. If it did,
customers would be able to skip a step when adding new nodes to their clusters.
It'd also avoid a minor annoyance.

Reassign to package maintainer
Comment 2 Derek Anderson 2005-02-10 10:40:36 EST
Setting to version 3 and closing as not a bug.  More recent versions of 
GFS-modules have fixed this issue. 
# rpm -qp --scripts GFS-modules-6.0.2-25.x86_64.rpm 
postinstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh): 
depmod -a 
Comment 3 Adam "mantis" Manthei 2005-02-14 14:10:59 EST
Actually... this is a bug.  "depmod -a" only works for the currently running
kernel.  It doesn't work when installing GFS on to a system that is not booted
into the kernel that GFS is going to run.  For example, it won't work if you are
running kernel version 2.4.21-15 and you install GFS modules that are for kernel
version 2.4.21-27.0.1. This bug is a dup of bug #148001, marking it as such.
