Description Nathan G. Grennan 2004-10-30 14:59:53 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020 Galeon/126.96.36.199 Description of problem: Two installed packages own the files in the same directories largely defeats the point of package management. It is likely to cause broken applications in many cases. Say two Gnome packages use the same library, but want to compiled with different options. So that their own versions of the file are mutally exclusive. So package A was installed and working. Package B is installed and overwrites /usr/lib/libgnomefoo.so.1. Now application B works and application A doesn't. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): rpm-4.3.2-13 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. rpm -i packagea.rpm 2. rpm -i packageb.rpm Actual Results: File conflicts by default Expected Results: No file conflicts by default Additional info: "RPM's default behavior regarding file conflicts in Fedora Core 3 has changed. In the past, file conflicts (where a file from one already-installed package also appears in a package that is to be installed) caused the installation of the package containing the conflicting file to abort. In Fedora Core 3, RPM will ignore such conflicts, and the package installation will proceed, overwriting any conflicting files from previously-installed packages."

I got Actual and Expected Results reversed. This default change could also have negative security effects.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2004-10-31 03:29:39 EST
File conflicts reenabled by default in rpm-4.3.2-18.
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2004-10-31 05:41:48 EST
REOPEN because it was not built in dist-fc3-HEAD, but rather dist-fc4. rel-eng will need to accept this in order for this bug to be closed.

Copy Warren :)
Comment 6 Cristian Gafton 2004-10-31 07:30:47 EST
Fix summary to show better in the dependency list for the FC3Blocker. Warren, please be careful when closing bugs as duplicate (you should have closed this bug as duplicate and left #131766 alone, since that was the older one filed)

I'm glad this change was reverted.
