Sure, but the reported issue has nothing to do with *running* the software 
on the hardware. It's error output from the %post script as the kernel RPM 
is installed. IIUC, it indicates that there is an internal inconsistency 
in the content of that kernel RPM (as I indicated in my earlier message) - 
but one which will have no functional consequences.
