Description of problem:
 up2date dead end package dependency problem
message :
There was a package dependency problem
unsolvable chain of dependencies
GFS-kernel requires /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.1831_FC4
cman-kernel requires /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.1831_FC4
dlm-kernel requires /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.1831_FC4
gnbd-kernel requires /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.1831_FC4

I resolved one similar problem by downloading a package.

I cannot find the /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.1831_FC4 in


up2date ran great after installing FC4

ALSO! up2date is telling me that I had set up certaing items to be excluded from automatic update and I never did that.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.do a simple FC4 up2date...I have only done straightforward up2date operations

Actual Results:  see description

Expected Results:  no dependency problems!

I could not find /lib/modules/2.6.15-1.1831_FC4 to solve problem

up2date was replaced by pirut and put (package pirut) as of FC5.  Only FC5 and
FC6 are currently fully supported; FC3 and FC4 are supported for security fixes
only.  If this bug occurs in FC3 or FC4 and is a security bug, please change the
product to Fedora Extras and the version to match.  If you can verify that the
bug exists in RHEL as well, please change the product and version appropriately.

The codebase for pirut and pup is quite different, but if a similar bug exists
in pirut and pup in FC5 or FC6, please change the product to pirut and the
version appropriately and update the bug report.

We apologize that the bug was not fixed before now.  The status will be changed
to NEEDINFO, and if the bug is not updated with evidence that it is a security
bug or a bug that affects RHEL, it will be closed.
