Description of problem:
The new-kernel-pkg script exits with an error if there is no grubby. This causes
kernel postinstall script errors on ppc64.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install the kernel rpm
Actual Results: error in postinstall scriptlet
Expected Results: no error
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
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.
