Description Fred New 2007-11-01 04:30:32 EDT
Description of problem:  Advisory RHSA-2007:0937 fixes a bug against the i86_64
kernel, but there is also a corresponding i686 kernel issued.  According to the
way I read this advisory, it doesn't affect the i686 kernel, but RHN suggests
that I should upgrade from kernel(-smp)-2.4.21-51.EL.i686 to
kernel(-smp)-2.4.21-52.EL.i686 and reboot my systems for something that doesn't
affect me.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
"Red Hat Network release 5.0.3"

How reproducible: Always (It appeared on every i686 system I administer.)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. On an RHN-registered i686 system, upgrade to kernel(-smp)-2.4.21-51.EL.i686
Actual results:  RHN reports that I need to upgrade to kernel-smp-2.4.21-52.EL.i686.

Expected results:  If it ain't broke, don't make me fix it.

RHN can only report what the RHEL group defines - if the errata in question is defined to require the update, then that's what RHN and yum and up2date are going to say.

Closing as NOTABUG - I can't comment on whether this particular errata *really* needed to update all the systems it claimed were affected, though.
