Description Henrik Karlsson 2001-10-21 10:18:33 UTC

Description of problem:
When trying to install the new kernel packages (2.4.9-6) for i686 and
i686-smp rpm complains about missig packages (modutils & mkinitrd) and a
conflict with one package (e2fsprogs).

Trying to solve these problems by installing the missing packages from the
update directory on ftp.redhat.com leads to one more missing package

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ivh kernel-smp-2.4.9-6.i686.rpm kernel-2.4.9-6.i686.rpm
2. rpm -Uvh modutils-2.4.6-4.i386.rpm mkinitrd-3.2.6-1.i386.rpm
e2fsprogs-1.23-1.7.1.i386.rpm e2fsprogs-devel-1.23-1.7.1.i386.rpm

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-10-21 10:22:12 UTC
"filesystem" is a noarch package (eg contains no binaries and is shared between
i386/alpha/ia64) and is in the noarch/ directory....
