    Hi all,

    I'm trying to upgrade the stock kernel on a RH8 box (2.4.18-14) to the
    latest given in the errata lists (2.4.20-20.8.i686) but I'm getting a
    strange error:

    [root@cluster01 root]# rpm -ivh kernel-2.4.20-20.8.i686.rpm
    warning: kernel-2.4.20-20.8.i686.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID
    error: Failed dependencies:
            oprofile < 0.4 conflicts with kernel-2.4.20-20.8

    I also get this error when I try and upgrade to 2.4.20-13.8.i686. I find
    this strange becuase I have upgraded a different RH8 box to the 20-13 kernel
    with no worries. Am I missing something, or just being thick?

    I've looked in the archives and I've found a reference to oprofile wrt to
    2.6 test kernel. Does this mean that I need to get the latest oprofile rpm
    from somewhere before I can upgrade the kernel?

    I'd also like to know how it got there when I don't think it is in the other
    RH8 boxes.
