Description Matthias Saou 2006-08-02 07:57:01 EDT
Since the latest nfs-utils package in FC5 updates got an epoch of 1 set because
of the release field problems, the current package in FC development (to become
FC6) also needs its epoch to be set to 1 in order to preserve the upgrade path
from FC5 to FC6.
Comment 1 Steve Dickson 2006-08-02 08:11:19 EDT
Why, since the nfs-utils in FC6 will be version 1.0.9?
Comment 2 Matthias Saou 2006-08-02 08:18:51 EDT
Because a higher epoch always wins : 1:1.0.8 > 0:1.0.9
Comment 3 Matthias Saou 2006-08-03 09:36:54 EDT
Looks like Warren fixed this today. See the comment in bug #196359.

Don't forget to learn how rpm's E-V-R (epoch, version, release) comparison
works, as being careful could have avoided this problem entirely.
