Summary: purge-kernels script removes older kernels but not the
corresponding -source and -devel packages
Product: openSUSE 12.1
Version: Milestone 5
OS/Version: SuSE Other
Priority: P5 - None

I have the kernel sources and the kernel-devel package installed and I am using
the multiversion kernel feature in zypp.conf.
The multiversion.kernels line in zypp.conf is
"multiversion.kernels = latest,latest-1,latest-2,running"
because I want to keep the newest kernel and the last two working ones.
The purge-kernels script is working fine as it removes old kernels as
configured in zypp.conf during the next reboot following a new kernel
install... except for two packages:
The kernel-source and the kernel-devel package are left on disk.
These two packages still have to be removed manually via Yast2 or zypper.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure the purge-kernels script in zypp.conf to tell the script how many
kernels it should keep (for testing purposes one kernel should be sufficient)
2. install kernel sources
3. install a new kernel with sources when a new kernel is offered in the repo
4. reboot after the installation of the new kernel
5. during reboot the purge-kernels script removes the old kernel but not the
corresponding kernel-source and kernel-devel packages
old kernel-source and kernel-devel packages are left on disk instead of being
removed and have to be removed manually using yast2 or zypper.
old kernel-source and kernel-devel packages will be removed together with their
corresponding kernel package.
Happens on 32 bit and 64 bit systems alike.
