Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 496591

This bug has been copied from bug #479270 and has been proposed
to be backported to 5.3 z-stream (EUS).
Z-stream build for this is mkinitrd-188.8.131.52-44.1 .
On RHEL5-U2 system I've upgraded to mkinitrd-184.108.40.206-44.1 from Brew:
# rpm -q mkinitrd
# uname -a
Linux athlon5 2.6.18-92.el5 #1 SMP Tue Apr 29 13:16:12 EDT 2008 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
# mkinitrd test-$(uname -r) $(uname -r)
# echo $?
# ls -l test-2.6.18-92.el5
-rw------- 1 root root 3119035 May 27 04:00 test-2.6.18-92.el5
The initrd image is created successfully. Moving to VERIFIED.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
on therefore solution and/or where to find the updated files,
please follow the link below. You may reopen this bug report
if the solution does not work for you.
Yum resolves the new packages but Red Hat Network does not show them and the links is not working also only giving a "Erratum not found"-Page.
Is this a problem or is the Erratum not yet synced to all rhn-mirrors?
