Description Alexander Shopov 2006-02-28 01:20:21 EST
Description of problem:
I did an update of a FC5T3 system using yum. When the update process got to
installing the new kernel and started the grubby process - I got an error. I am
attaching the output of the console.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm -qa | grep kern

rpm -qa | grep mkini

I do think that during the update - there was a new mkinitrd version as well. 

How reproducible: The new kernel has not been installed. If given instructions -
I can try to prepare a scenario to check if this bug occurs regularly

Additional info:
I have attached the log of the console. If you need further info - I will try to
provide it.

I am seeing that, too - with slightly different behaviour though. The kernel
package is installed, all the files are there, only /boot/grub/grub.conf is left
Comment 3 Alexander Shopov 2006-02-28 03:49:26 EST
The problem with my grubby is exacly the same as the comment #2 by Pawel Salek -
rpm installs the files and then the install scripts call /sbin/grubby via
/sbin/new-kernel-pkg. Then I get the doublefree bug and grub's conf file is left
unedited - no entry for the new kernel.
