Summary0015933: yum prefers kernel-debug-devel to kernel-devel when resolving dependencies
DescriptionWhenever kernel sources required to compile modules are required and there are none, yum tries to install kernel-debug-devel instead of usually more appropriate kernel-devel as it did in previous releases. This breaks i.e. installing the nvidia driver on a minimal system if kernel-devel is not already installed (unless you are running debug kernel of course!).
Steps To Reproduce1) Do a minimal install.
2) Try to install something that requires module compilation, e.g. install systemtap.
Additional InformationI did not check if the upstream has this problem.
Tagskernel-debug-devel, kernel-devel, nvidia, systemtap
