Description Aurelien Bompard 2007-03-01 16:36:38 EST
Description of problem:
I have a locally built kmod for the ipw3945 wifi chipset.
When I try to install the latest RawHide kernel, here's what I get:
# yum install kernel
Loading "changelog" plugin
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Loading "skip-broken" plugin
Loading "fedorakmod" plugin
Setting up Install Process

Checking deps for kernel.i686 0-2.6.20-1.2949.fc7 - None
--> Processing Dependency: kernel-i686 = 2.6.20-1.2949.fc7 for package: kmod-ipw3945
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: kernel-i686 = 2.6.20-1.2949.fc7 is needed by package
kmod-ipw3945

2949 is what I'm running now, and what my kmod is built for at the moment.
Same problem with --noplugins

The 2949 is not going to be erased by the installonlyn plugin (I have increased
the limit to 5 kernels and I have 3 installed), so why should that cause a
missing dependency with the the kernel's own kmod ? 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -qa | grep -e yum -e kernel -e kmod

Aurelien,

Do you still have this issue ?
Comment 2 Tim Lauridsen 2007-09-28 08:19:03 EDT
ping Aurelien !
Comment 3 Aurelien Bompard 2007-09-28 10:21:52 EDT
Sorry, I don't use the ipw3945 driver anymore, I use the included iwl3945, so I
don't have this issue anymore, and I can't reproduce it too.
I guess that closes it...
