Description Adrian Likins 2002-06-20 23:10:43 EDT
Stumbled across this while testing some up2date
changes on a 2.1AS chroot on my laptop.

It looks like the i686 glibc packages requires libredhat-kernel	
[root@sludge RPMS]# rpm -qp --requires glibc-2.2.4-26.i686.rpm 
glibc-common = 2.2.4-26
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1

but none of the plain "kernel" packages provide this:

[root@sludge RPMS]# rpm -qp --provides kernel-2.4.9-e.3.i686.rpm 
kernel = 2.4.9
kernel-drm = 4.1.0
kernel = 2.4.9-e.3

[root@sludge RPMS]# rpm -qp --provides kernel-2.4.9-e.3.athlon.rpm 
kernel = 2.4.9
kernel-drm = 4.1.0
kernel = 2.4.9-e.3

This potentially breaks up2date, depending on if the default install
only includes "kernel" packages or not. If "-smp", "-enterprise" or
"-summit" kernels are included, they provide libredhat-kernel.

Has this been looked at yet? 

In a brief glance, it appears that it is not a problem in Taroon, because glibc
does not require any kernel stuff.

Is this something that is likely to get fixed in the next errata?
Comment 2 Suzanne Hillman 2003-08-13 17:37:07 EDT
However, it is still true that libredhat-kernel is not in the plain kernel
package in Taroon. But, I'm not entirely sure it's supposed to be, since it's
also not in -smp.
