It also apears that SLES8 is affected by what ever bug is on SuSE 8.1 ( I have
seen this happen with SP3 recently ) and hence no kernel-source.rpm. Are there any
plans on getting this bug fixed and a kernel-source.rpm? I do not consider a tar
file a very clean fix as rpm will no longer reflect what is on the box. Neither is
it exactly easy to deploy tar files via auto yast and across a LOT of systems.
