Description Marc MERLIN 1999-02-28 20:34:28 UTC
You most likely already know about this, but I couldn't find it in the archives. moremagic:~# rpm -qa | grep alsa alsadriver-0.2.0-pre6-1 alsa-driver-0.2.0-pre10p1-1 alsa-driver-0.2.0-pre10p2-1 moremagic:~# rpm -e alsa-driver-0.2.0-pre10p1-1 package alsa-driver-0.2.0-pre10p1-1 is not installed The problem here is that the version number contains a dash, and it confuses RPM. I agree that the package maker is at fault here, but it'd be nice if once those packages are installed, they could be removed also
Comment 1 Marc MERLIN 1999-02-28 20:39:59 UTC
I should rephrase: Rpm _can_ remove the packages, if you do the following: rpm --allmatches -e alsa-driver but it can't really deal with them in a correct way. Maybe rpm -i should refuse to install packages that have bad names (more than one '-' in the version number)

This bug has been assigned to a developer further review.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-03-09 05:17:59 UTC
Fixed (by checking for improper minus) in recent versions of rpm-2.5.x and rpm-2.9x.
