Description winston2 1998-12-26 23:12:40 EST
When you install this rpm it fails to complete and
apparently does not link the new modules to the proper
directory. You have to do a ln -sf 2.0.36-1 2.0.36 or else
you have a boot up error unable to open 2.0.36 modules.dep
and its down hill from there. I wasted many hours with this
and luckily I found help on usenet.
Comment 1 Aleksey Nogin 1998-12-27 01:34:59 EST
Are you sure it was "kernel-headers-2.0.36-1", not "kernel-2.0.36-1"?
Why did you chose Component "rpm" instead of "kernel"?
Comment 2 winston2 1998-12-27 15:54:59 EST
I performed the ln -sf 2.0.36-1 2.0.36
in the /lib/modules directory.
I performed the RPM from /tmp.

If I did not do the ln the OS could not find the proper modules.dep
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1998-12-30 14:19:59 EST
On the next reboot, rc.sysinit should do
	ln -sf /lib/modules/2.0.36-1 /lib/modules/preferred
and then depmod -a will be run on the path /lib/modules/preferred

That's what is supposed to happed with Red Hat (and Red Hat only)
kernel-* rpm's. Please reopen this bug if a reboot does not
create  a /lib/modules/preferred symlink.
