Driver Update Disk Format Change for RHEL5.3 (allow renamed packages)
Last modified: 2009-01-20 16:33:12 EST
Description of problem:
Previous releases of RHEL5 have required that the Driver Update disk contain RPMs wherein the name matches kmod-$driver_name-$kernel_variant (for appropriate values of $driver_name exactly matching the ".ko" file, and the kernel variant being one of the standard RHEL5.X supported Enterprise kernels). We require, however, to support arbitrary names with the right dependencies being used to resolve the name that should be selected at install time.
A trivial patch exists, which is under test at the moment. This needs to make 5.3 and has previously been discussed by the installer team, myself, Daniel Riek, and numerous others. It's been worked on but didn't have a BZ to track it formally.
This should be fixed in anaconda-18.104.22.168-1.
