Description Peter Bowen 2001-08-10 02:10:21 UTC
When trying to use up2date, I got the following warning: Test install failed failed because of package conflicts: package Gtk-Perl-0.7008-ximian.1 (which is newer than Gtk-Perl-0.7008-1) is already installed If the version on my system is newer than the version that RHN has, then I should not have been offered the package to upgrade.
Comment 1 Peter Bowen 2001-08-10 03:04:28 UTC
Steps to reproduce: 1) Install Red Hat Linux 6.2 2) Update to the latest errata _except_ only update to RPM v3.0.5 You won't be able to install the ucd-snmp update, and will only be able to update to up2date-2.1.x, the 2nd to last gnorpm updates, and a couple of others. 3) Install Ximian GNOME 1.4, including packages from the Ximian Preview Channel 4) Upgrade to Fairfax beta3 5) Run rhn_register and register the system 6) Run up2date, choose select all packages and try to upgrade 7) See the error message :)

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax.
Comment 3 Adrian Likins 2001-08-10 20:40:24 UTC
our gnome packages have a higher epoch than ximians.

Comment 5 Peter Bowen 2001-08-11 03:04:55 UTC
After a little more testing, I can make this error occur when I only select Gtk-Perl or eel. I could probably recreate this error with several other packages. Neither the Gtk-Perl nor the eel package from Ximian, nor the ones from RHL Rawhide, have an epoch, sorry Adrian :/
