Description of problem:
I installed two identical Compaq 4000s Pentium 233 MMX systems with Redhat
7.2. One was a new clean install and one I upgraded from Roswell (yes I
know the upgrade isn't supported). The initial install and upgrade place
i386 arch kernels on each system. When kernel 2.4.9-13 became available
up2date selected the i386 kernels for update and if memory serves me
correctly the i386 glibc package as well. Rather than use the i386
packages I downloaded and installed the glibc and kernel i586 versions for
2.4.9-13. Now every time I run up2date it still tells me that I need to
update my kernel to 2.4.9-13.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. select up2dte -u
2. it diplays skipping kernel 2.4.9-13 due to configuration blah, blah
Actual Results: I have been ignoring the recommended update
Expected Results: up2date should recognize that I have the correct kernel
Do you still see this behaviour with the latest version of
up2date-2.7.11 has corrected the problem. Thanks.
Closing this out then.
