Description Michal Jaegermann 2001-06-11 20:38:16 EDT
Description of Problem:
A way in which /etc/rc.d/init/nfslock scripts finds KERNVER and
KERNREL is very fragile and breaks if somebody will use a kernel
which will not follow _the current_ Red Hat naming convention.
This is usually the case with custom kernels.

The same action is performed in /etc/rc.d/init/nfs in quite a bit
better way even if different names are used.  Strangely enough
is not adopted but badly reinvented.

I thought that I was already complaining about that in the past
but cannot find now the corresponding report and my records also
do not show it.

This will be fixed in the next release.
