How reproducible:
Always

1.install the kernel rpm
2.
3.
    

Actual Results:  error in postinstall scriptlet

Expected Results:  no error

Additional info:

By the way, it exits with success if 'verbose' is on.

The pSeries has yaboot, which in general can be treated like lilo.
On iSeries, the new kernel image has to be copied into the boot source for the B
and C sides.

Should be there in 3.4.39+, but needs testing
Comment 2 Guy Streeter 2005-07-08 10:32:40 EDT
I think it is safe to assume this is now fixed. I haven't seen this problem in
RHEL or Fedora in a long time.
