Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 80553
last 2 kernel updates don't make it to grub & no img files created
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:49:20 EDT
Description of problem:
Loaded 2.4.18 from cd image during standard install which included:
Launched up2date and pulled down 2.4.18-14, which installed into grub.
ever since then when up2date indicates new kernel is available:
I download and keep hitting Forward until I reach Finished. Then ...
Normal shutdown & reboot.
New kernels are not available for selection in Grub
Restart up2date and critical information informs me that my kernel is still
version 2.4.18-17.8.0 and that I should reboot to test the new kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
every kernel update I get through up2date
Steps to Reproduce:
on my system: as described above. your milage may very.
in /boot I see:
configs for 2.4.18-14, -17.8.0, -18.8.0 & -19.8.0
module-info for 2.4.18-14, -17.8.0, -18.8.0 & -19.8.0
System.nmap for 2.4.18-14, -17.8.0, -18.8.0 & -19.8.0
vmlinux for 2.4.18-14, -17.8.0, -18.8.0 & -19.8.0
vmlinuz for 2.4.18-14, -17.8.0, -18.8.0 & -19.8.0
however for initrd there is only 2.4.18-14 and -17.8.0 (.img)'s
So I know that the img files are never getting made.
If someone can give me a step by step I will check to see what files
have/have not been updated, and I will provide a more detailed report.
Any suggestions on what to check next sincerely appreciated.
Thanks a 10E6,
fixed in more recent releases
