Re: fedora core 4: can't get kernel source (x86_64) with up2date

I also think it's a bug in the release notes, but for a different reason.

up2date --get-source should retrieve the SRPM for the named package. Since the named package is "kernel" and not "kernel-source", it's nothing to do with the naming convention change since FC2 (i.e. no more kernel-source package). The problem now is, I think, that up2date uses the same repos as yum, and yum repos don't contain any SRPMs. So up2date --get-source isn't going to work with yum repos.

If you find bugs in the release notes, http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/release-notes/fc4/errata/ provides a prefilled template http://tinyurl.com/al5g4 for filing them.
