I don't know....

The only other thing I can think to check is the integrity of the RPM packages involved:
rpm -V glibc
rpm -V kernel-2.6.26.3-29
rpm -V mkinitrd
rpm -V grub
rpm -V <any other relevant package name>

See if anything jumps out....

If you have run Dangermouses install script or have enabled repository protection yourselt you are not going to get any updates because the protection plugin for yum sees the new key repo as conflicting with the update repo. the way to get around this is very easy


open all your fedora repo files in /etc/yum.repos.d and make sure the protect=yes line is not present in the fedora.repo, fedora-updates and fedora-updates-testing repos

this will cause your update to fail i had to go through and do this myself. If you want to protect the new repos then open the ones with .newkey as part of the file name and add that line protect=yes to the file under each repo

Thanks, Andrew.

I opened all the repo files in /etc/yum.repos.d and none of the files had a protect=yes present.

What to do?

Thanks again.

Alright, I went brute force and reinstalled Fedora 9. After updating the system, the same issue cropped up again - /etc/grub.conf was not getting modified and I was getting the dreaded failure during the kernel upgrade.

Not wanting to give up, I modified /etc/grub.conf to that shown below, and I have been able
to boot the recent kernel. I still don't know why the kernel upgrade is not modifying /etc/grub.conf.

Seems Fedora 9 kernel upgrade is buggy:

-----------------------------------------------------------

timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,4)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
default=0
title Fedora (2.6.26.3-29.fc9.i686)
root (hd0,4)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.26.3-29.fc9.i686 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
initrd /initrd-2.6.26.3-29.fc9.i686.img
title Other
rootnoverify (hd0,1)
chainloader +1

kernel-2.6.26.3-29.fc9.i686 upgrade did not modify my grub.conf

I had the same problem, but here's what happened.

I edited inittab to boot to runlevel 3 for other reasons.
Logged in as root, did some stuff...then having already removed kernel-x.3-29.fc9...and headers. I did a yum update as root from runlevel 3 and all was good.

No errors...postcript ran without problems initrd.x.img was created and grub.conf was updated.

Rebooted into new kernel and all was good.

Maybe worth a try...if you haven't already fixed it...I assume you probably have.
