- "kernel-devel" and "kernel-doc" got updated but not the "kernel"

- kernels  2.6.14-1.1777_FC5 and 2.6.14-1.1777_FC5 do not honour

In an attempt to verify my initial thoughts, i installed a SysVinit based on 2.85 (the FC4 version to be exact).

After that - booting with an s on the kernel command line puts me into single user mode just fine.


FWIW, I noticed that during the yum update of SysVinit the following occurred:
telinit: timeout opening/writing control channel /dev/initctl
