Thank you for responding so quickly.
rhn showed that I needed to update my kernal, I clicked on select all, then clicked forward. The next thing I know, it's stuck halfway through. I don't remember what package it was on.
My system is still running (I'm writing this from the system), lilo doesn't list anything other than one entry which looks like the old entry.
The only problem I can see is that whenever I issue an rpm command on one of the packages, it sits there in limbo.
the rpm -v -rebuildall is still sitting there, and nothing has been output.
The other commands I've tried are:
rpm -vU blah blah.rpm (where blah blah was an actual package in /var/spool/up2date)
rpm -v --test -U blah blah.rpm
and they all never give me any feedback and sit there forever.
I grep'd for kernel in /var/log/* but nothing seemed out of the ordinary. Is there something specific I should be looking at?
It asked to update the kernel before anythign else I think.
