Description udaya 1999-10-13 13:17:22 EDT
I have downloaded redhat linux 6.1 for i386.

I get the following error when installing:
kernel <= 2.2 conflicts with initscripts-4.48-1

Then, I also did a query on initscript rpm and got the

[root@queen0 rpms]# rpm -qp --queryformat

How are you installing it? VIA normal installation, or are you
installing the packages piece-by-piece?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-13 15:40:59 EDT
What kernel(s) do you have installed on the machines installing on,
and what version of RPM do you have installed?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-13 16:06:59 EDT
That would be the problem then; the initscripts from 6.1 will
not work with a 2.0 kernel; that's why the conflicts: is there.
