I'm puzzled how you ended up with a system with no kernel-utils.
As its a kernel dependancy, it must be installed.

did you rpm -e --force it ?

reinstalling that package should fix this. Though I'm also puzzled why up2date
didnt pull it in directly.

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 18:39:21 UTC
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.
