Description of problem:
This appears to be a duplicate of bug 54822.  I don't have a log of the 
output of 'up2date' (version 2.5.4) because I used the Red Hat Network 
icon to update my kernel (from 2.4.9-6 to 2.4.9-12).  I reported this 
problem to Red Hat Support (Service Request 194647), and after following 
several suggestions and requests for data, I updated the kernel "by hand" 
(editing /etc/lilo.conf, and running 'mkinitrd' and 'lilo').  The 
remaining problem is that 'up2date' does not recognize that the kernel has 
been updated (successful reboot, both with a boot diskette and without).  

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on the Red Hat Network icon to start the Red Hat Network Agent.
2. Click on 'Next' button and wait for 'Update agent progress' to complete.

Actual Results:  When the 'Packages Flagged to be Skipped' dialog is 
displayed, it erroneously includes the package name 'kernel', version 
2.4.9, release 12.

Expected Results:  This package should not be listed because it has 
already been installed.  Instead, up2date should report that there are no 
packages to update.

Additional info:

This should be fixed in the next version of the client. 

(updated kernels still being listed as needing update)
