Description Robert Nichols 2001-11-03 18:40:05 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.9-6 i586; Nav)

Description of problem:
Even after Update Agent has just installed kernel-2.4.9-12, if I run
up2date again it still reports that I need to upgrade to kernel-2.4.9-12. 
If I run "rpm -q kernel" it correctly reports that I have kernel-2.4.2-2,
kernel-2.4.9-6, and kernel-2.4.9-12 installed.
If I allow up2date to install the kernel again, "rpm -q kernel" now reports
that I have kernel-2.4.9-12 installed _twice_.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run up2date (configured for automatic installation) when current kernel
version < 2.4.9-12
2.Run up2date again.

Additional info:

Running up2date-2.5.4-1.i386

Comment 1 Robert Nichols 2001-11-03 19:07:07 EST
Problem persists even when I am booted and running on kernel-2.4.9-12.
Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2001-11-05 15:12:54 EST
I think I see what is causing this problem. 

There should be a fix in the next release of the client.
Comment 3 Curtis Doty 2001-12-05 01:58:20 EST
Problem went away on at least one my my boxes running i586 kernel. Yipee.
