rhn incorrectly reports kernel upgrade required
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:45:12 EST
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.
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.
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.
this should be fixed now (in cvs, qa, and live)
Yep, this is resolved now. Closing out.
