Description ryuhei yokokawa 2006-02-25 20:23:11 EST
Description of problem:
When installing the 2.6.15-1.1977 kernel it spits out problems and does not
install properly.
Also, the 1977 kernel leaves my machine with a kernel panic when I boot the
kernel by manually editting grub.conf

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Very (install, reinstall and yet the problem persists)

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install FC5_T3
2.yum update everything
3.The kernel does not get installed properly
4.Tried reinstalling kernel
5.Still not working
Actual results:
Look at the result on the "Additional Info" section

Expected results:
Just a normal kernel install without problems.
Be able to reboot and into the new kernel without a kernel panic.

Additional info:
Just installed FC5_T3 and yum updated.  Nothing has yet to be altered.

This is what rpm spits out:
[root@localhost xys]# rpm -e kernel-devel-2.6.15-1.1977_FC5 kernel-2.6.15-1.1977_FC5

Comment 1 Paul Stauffer 2006-02-26 00:05:30 EST
I got the same errors during installation of the kernel package, but manually
adding the grub.conf entry allowed the kernel to boot normally.  Can you attach
your grub.conf?
Comment 2 ryuhei yokokawa 2006-02-26 01:36:07 EST
Here's my grub:

title Fedora Core (2.6.15 with the 1977 something)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.15-1.1977_FC5 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.15-1.1977_FC5.img

title Fedora Core (2.6.15-1.1955_FC5)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.15-1.1955_FC5 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.15-1.1955_FC5.img

when you installed, did it spit out the exact same errors?
