Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 362071
not able tp update kernel.
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:59:58 EST
Description of problem:
I'm using a Dell Inspiron 6400, and to enable Wi-Fi, I installed ndiswrapper and
kmod-ndiswrapper. Everything is good and Wi-Fi works. But when a newer version
of kernel is available, when using yum update kernel, it processes the
kmod-ndiswrapper and kmod-fglrx and decides to install the older version of
kernel, which is the same as installed one and the same as kmod-fglrx and
kmod-ndiswrapper. But it can not find that kernel version on repos. The same
thing happens using yum update kmod-ndiswrapper or yum update kmod-fglrx. My yum
related packages versions are
and kernel version :
and kmod :
and the available versions of kernel on repos where : 18.104.22.168-42
But when I downloaded last versions of kernel, kernel-devel, kernel-headers,
kmod-fglrx, kmod-ndiswrapper and installed them in the correct order using rpm
-i, they were installed with no errors. And after rebooting the system and
booting with the new kernel, everything was fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It's reproducible using those versions I wrote. Currently latest versions.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Have ndiswrapper and kmod-ndiswrapper and kmod-fglrx installed on your system.
2.Try to update kernel.
(I missed the result)
But it said that the dependencis are missing (Because it was trying to find
older versions of kernel)
Work fine and update kernel.
there is no need to update ndiswrapper package to make things work fine,
kmod-ndiswrapper update is sufficient.
You have to install the yum-fedorakmod plugin to make the kmod update work right.
from the slightly unclear description this looks a lot like 330711; closing as dup

@tim: No, it should work fine without it.
