Description of problem:

Sometimes I have noticed that in rhts  	"/kernel/drivers/modules" test failed because removal
of "kernel-largesmp-2.6.9-55.EL" kernel rpm after the test failed.

Remove kernel-largesmp-2.6.9-34.EL kernel
Remove kernel-largesmp-2.6.9-42.EL kernel
Remove kernel-largesmp-2.6.9-55.EL kernel
error: %preun(kernel-largesmp-2.6.9-55.EL.ppc64) scriptlet failed, exit status 0
make: *** [run] Terminated

This has been noticed only on this particular powerpc machine only.


Paul had tried taking machine out of rhts and reproduce the problem, but he was unsuccessful.

Here are the rhts logs.
