Description Spider 2000-10-09 23:37:35 UTC
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-> ?

What is not fine is to assume the _currently running_ kernel is in
