Description Spider 2000-10-09 19:37:35 EDT
mount /dev/hdd burn/
cd burn/preview/RPMS/
rpm -i kernel-2.4......


in the preinstall script there is a line of:

/sbin/modprobe loop 2> /dev/null > /dev/null
exit 0
wich leaved that said modprobe running after the rpm was finished, end
result is locking my cdrom :/

other point, isn't kernel 2.4 specificly not to be installed in
/usr/src/linux-> ?
;)

This is a kernel packaging problem. Changing component ...

About 1:
Duplicate of bug 18115
About 2:
Nobody cares where you install it. /usr/src/linux is fine. 
What is not fine is to assume the _currently running_ kernel is in
/usr/src/linux.
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2002-12-15 23:03:01 EST
Both issues long since fixed
