Description wpb-rhl 1999-09-02 21:25:34 EDT
On an SMP machine, we are required to keep both kernel and
kernel-smp.  Kernel-smp should provide kernel in the RPM
sense.  Attempting to rpm -e kernel fails because removing
kernel would break dependancies that should be satisfied by
the SMP kernel.  To wit:

[root@bigbit /root]# uname -r
2.2.12-4smp
[root@bigbit /root]# rpm -qa | grep kernel-
kernel-2.2.12-4
kernel-smp-2.2.12-4
kernel-doc-2.2.12-4
kernel-headers-2.2.12-4
[root@bigbit /root]# rpm -e kernel-2.2.12-4 --test
error: removing these packages would break dependencies:
        kernel >= 2.0.28 is needed by dosemu-0.99.10-4
        kernel >= 2.2.5 is needed by knfsd-1.4.6-2
        module-info is needed by kernelcfg-0.5-5

Thankyoupleasedrivethrough.
