Description of problem:
During upgrade from FC4 to FC5 old kernels were deleted (same on two different
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Launch an upgrade from FC4 to FC5 using CD's.
Steps to Reproduce:
All present kernels were deleted (in particular vmlinux, initrd, system-map and
No kernel should be deleted
On upgrade, all packages get upgraded including the kernel
in previous releases (I am sure as I usually deleted all kernel but one before
updating and after upgrade I found two kernels, 4 in case of SMP-Kernel present)
kernel was added and old kernels were kept.
Old kernels, shouldn't be upgraded. Just install the new kernel, without remove
the old ones, like yum update does.
