Description Rick Stevens 2001-11-30 13:21:02 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011012

Description of problem:
When attempting to upgrade a 7.1 installation to kernel 2.4.9-12, the RPM
requires the latest mkinitrd binary RPM, which requires the latest
filesystem binary RPM, which doesn't exist on the FTP site.  A source RPM
does exist but no binary one.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to updates.redhat.com/7.1/en/os/i386 and look for the
filesystem-2.1.0-2.1.RPM.  You won't find it.

2. However, updates.redhat.com/7.1/en/os/SRPMS has the
filesystem-2.1.0-2.1.src.rpm source RPM


Additional info:

In order to install the kernel-2.4.9-12.i686.rpm, the dependency tree
requires this filesystem-2.1.0-2.1 rpm.  Therefore, installation of the new
kernel is not possible.

Look in the noarch directory.
