Description Christopher Blizzard 2001-04-19 11:32:42 EDT
After upgrading my kernel with up2date I end up with both the old kernel
and the new kernel installed.  Even after doing an up2date -p the web site
reports that I still need a kernel upgrade.
Comment 1 Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2001-05-28 11:20:34 EDT
I saw the same problem, a 'rpm -q kernel' showed

After 'rpm -e kernel-2.2.17-14' and 'up2date -p' the problem went away.
Comment 2 Jay Turner 2001-06-12 08:47:05 EDT
This is a known problem resulting from the code seeing the old kernel and
therefore adding the new one to the update list.  Basically this problem will
happen for any packages which you have multiple versions installed on the
system.  Working to fix it as I type this.
Comment 3 Chip Turner 2001-09-18 17:23:44 EDT
this should be fixed now (in cvs, qa, and live)
Comment 4 Jay Turner 2001-09-21 11:10:46 EDT
Yep, this is resolved now.  Closing out.
