I installed FC10 as an upgrade and everything worked fine. I keep up with all the new packages updates and nicely upgraded the kernel to version 188.8.131.52-134.fc10.i686.
However when I tried to upgrade to 184.108.40.206-159.fc10.i686 (currently the latest) I get some error messages when the post install scripts are run to (I assume) build the initrd.
The cp command misses the libparted and libiso as well as plymouth. When I check the latest versions of these packages are installed from fc10. So question #1 is why are the files not in the expected place; why is the libparted version although on my system in a different place then is expected by the post install script. Because the files fail to copy I expected problems.
Indeed after a reboot the kernel panics complaining about the missing libparted shared library. Of course I can create my own initrd img again by adding the missing files but why did this happen in the first place. Why does one upgrade (build -134) pass and the next kernel upgrade (build -159) fail. It seems to me that either the 159 kernel build of version 220.127.116.11.fc10 has a flawed post install script or I must have a system that strangely enough never had an issue updating the kernel now all of a sudden runs into this problem due to files being in different places.
Unfortunately after un-installing the failed upgrade GRUB couldn't boot any more into stage 1 and I needed to resort to a rescue disk to get GRUB back up and running. Can anyone shed some light on these events, share common problems, or confirm this issue. For now I stay away from the latest kernel-18.104.22.168-159.fc10
