Description Van 2003-07-02 15:17:46 UTC
Description of problem: Since I try to installed standard java packagae j2sdk-
1.4.2. And for some compatibility issue with linux kernels before 2.4.20, I 
attempted to upgrade my current kernel-2.4.18-14 to the lastest update kernel-
2.4.20-18.8.i686 but it fails due to dependency problems, even with --force 
option. However, it's fine with kernel-2.4.18-27. Would you plz tell me why? I 
found out that kernel-2.4.20 is also of Redhat 9, does it have anything to do 
with it? Would it be ok to install redhat 9 kernel on top of redhat 8's ?

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

How reproducible:
I basically get the same error of failed dependency everytime I tried 
installing it. Also, the md5 check isn't good regardless of where I get the 
kernel-2.4.20-18.8.i686.rpm file. In fact, I got couple of copies from mirror 
of uw-madison and of redhat too.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -K kernel-2.4.20-18.8.i686.rpm -> NO KEY
2. rpm -ivh --force kernel-2.4.20-18.8.i686.rpm -> Failed Dependency
Actual results:

Expected results:

Please provide the exact messages printed

 Sorry I didn't write down the error messages before, but it has to do with 
the dependency of oprofile and kernel files, and I managed to successfully 
update to kernel-2.4.20-8 by removing oprofile.
  However, I got another problem: without oprofile file, I don't seem to use 
mknode or anything involving sys files. So, I try to install oprofile-0.4-
44.i386.rpm, but it shows me the following messages ( I have no clue now ):

warning: oprofile-0.4-44.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID db42a60e
Preparing              ##########################################[100%]
cannot handle file "libc.so.6" with TLS data

 Would you plz tell me what's wrong with it, and how to fix it? Appreciate it!

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
