Description Pavel Kankovsky 2002-03-13 10:42:11 EST
Description of Problem:
A new version in kernel-headers is not included in the most recent batch of
kernel updates (RHSA-2002-026, "Vulnerability in zlib library"). This makes it
pretty difficult to rebuild custom kernel modules (e.g. vmware*) when the
updates are installed.

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

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install all updates
2. rpm -q kernel kernel-headers

Actual Results:

Expected Results:
kernel-headers-2.2.19-6.2.15 <---!

Additional Information:
It is rather amusing a new version of kernel-source (sources without headers)
has been released.
Comment 1 Pavel Kankovsky 2002-03-13 14:20:29 EST
What is the purpose of this update anyway? The only patch touching zlib.c is the
deprecated ipvs-1.0.6-2.2.19.patch?!

I read somewhere that the only kernel code affected by RHSA-2002-026 is the
kernel-resident ppp module.

By the way, I can vouch for the fact that the build of 2.2.19-6.2.15 kernel
source blows up with 2.2.19-6.2.12 kernel headers.

I've seen a similar problem in building php and some other applications so I
don't think it's limited to kernel modules.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
