Description mrj 1999-06-16 03:54:57 UTC
rpm -e kernel-source removes kernel-headers and things don't
compile.  kernel-source remove script should check for
package kernel-headers and leave files or reinstall or warn
or at least remove kernel-headers pkg from rpm db so rpm
-Uvh kernel-headers doesn't fail
