Description Brian Ryner 1999-08-15 03:49:01 UTC
After upgrading to rpm-3.0.3-0.12, rpm -Uvh is causing
severe problems for me.  It appears to enter the new package
version in the rpm database, and remove the old version, but
the files from the new version are NEVER INSTALLED.  So I am
left with the package completely gone.

This happened for me on both rawhide-release-19990814-1 and
tar-1.13.6-1.  Installing from scratch (also with rpm -Uvh)
does not seem to be affected by this bug.

Fixed in rpm-3.0.3-13.
