Description of problem:
I used "Red Hat Alert Notification Tool" and "Launch up2date" on the morning of
08/30/02 to download and install the most recent update for pxe.  up2date
reported it was 100% complete, but disk activity continued for serveral minutes.
Finally, a pop-up window reported that an rpm error had occurred.  The
"message:" field in the pop-up window was blank.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run "Red Hat Alert Notification Tool"
2.Run "Launch up2date"
(Note:  This assumes the test system needs the updated pxe.)

Hmm, I'm sort of lost how to reproduce this - there's nothing in the pxe package that would 
make it a special case, and I'm pretty sure this isn't happening to others...

Well, I wound up having to rebuild the laptop because I tried applying nVidia's
drivers (I am using a Dell Latitude something or other).  The problem did not
occur again when I updated the system.  Thanks for getting back to me.  Linux
really is a great thing.
