Description Orion Poplawski 2012-08-15 18:17:39 EDT
Description of problem:

Trying to install Microsoft's Linux Integration Services on a EL6.3 VM you get:

error: Failed dependencies:
        kernel(clocksource_register) = 0xd88be65d is needed by kmod-microsoft-hyper-v-rhel63.3-4.20120605.x86_64

Indeed, that kernel provide changed from the 6.2 kernels to 6.3:

# rpm -q kernel-2.6.32-220.23.1.el6.x86_64 --provides | grep -F 'kernel(clocksource_register)'
kernel(clocksource_register) = 0xd88be65d
# rpm -q kernel-2.6.32-279.1.1.el6.x86_64 --provides | grep -F 'kernel(clocksource_register)'
kernel(clocksource_register) = 0xd2235d73

No idea if this was intentional or not or if this particular KABI is not expected to stay the same.

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

This is a Microsoft bug and not a RHEL bug.  I'll try to get some sort of message to Microsoft through our internal contacts about the situation but, again, this isn't a RHEL bug.
