Description RHEL Product and Program Management 2009-04-20 04:25:02 EDT
This bug has been copied from bug #479270 and has been proposed
to be backported to 5.3 z-stream (EUS).
Comment 4 Peter Jones 2009-05-26 14:42:03 EDT
Z-stream build for this is mkinitrd- .
Comment 6 Alexander Todorov 2009-05-27 04:05:38 EDT
On RHEL5-U2 system I've upgraded to mkinitrd- 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.

Comment 9 Gerrit Slomma 2009-06-13 05:41:55 EDT
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?
