Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 812192
kernel-2.6.32-220.el6.x86_64 missing /sbin/new-kernel-pkg
Last modified: 2012-07-12 14:35:05 EDT
Description of problem:
In Yum Extender, I get the following error: 21:31:35 : ERROR: Error in yum Transaction : [u'ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve:', '/sbin/new-kernel-pkg is needed by (installed) kernel-2.6.32-220.el6.x86_64', '/sbin/new-kernel-pkg is needed by (installed) kernel-2.6.32-220.el6.x86_64', u'Please report this error at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Red%20Hat%20Enterprise%20Linux%206&component=yum']
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): el 6.2
How reproducible: If you try to install kernel-2.6.32-220.el6.x86_64 you should receive this error
Steps to Reproduce:
Thanks for the bug report. Could you please let me know what your _original_ kernel version was? I'd like to try reproducing it here using exactly the kernel versions you are/were using.
/sbin/new-kernel-pkg is from grubby, not the kernel.
Since RHEL 6.3 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This appears to me to be a bug in Yum Extender, which we don't ship. At any rate it's certainly not a grubby bug. I'm closing this, as I don't think it's our bug. If there's data which shows that I'm wrong, feel free to re-open it.
