urpmi installs wrong kernel-source


anyone else encountered the problem that urpmi installs the wrong version (2.4, instead of 2.6) of the kernel-source? I solved the problem with mdk control center, but I wonder if this is just a random error or something wrong with my settings.

Code:
]# kernelversion
    2.6
]# urpmi kernel-source
    ftp://../../../official/10.1/i586/me....1mdk.i586.rpm

You can always be more specific:

urpmi kernel-source-2.6

But it should have given you a choice if there were more than one kernel-source packages in the repository.

urpmi pulls down the most recent available version of the software you requested if you do not qualify the selection.

When there are similiarly named packages, of different types, it will present the available choices.

The actual kernel is excluded from urpmi installs (unless explicitly indicated) to avoid newbie problems in the installs...

Otherwise you may have seen both the kernel-source and the actual kernel being updated at the same time, as it does for other packages...

the point was that I didn't get a choice, it just downloaded the 2.4 source, no questions asked. I seem to have "lost" tab completion in urpmi too, (at least I think I had that before...)

It will only give you a choice under certain circumstances.

Your best bet is to utilize RPMDRAKE once the URPMI sources are set up to make your selections.
