Description of problem:
Steps:

1) Installed RedHat Linux 9.0.
2) Patched system to current levels using up2date.
3) Later ran "up2date --install net-snmp-utils".
4) Up2date reports net-snmp-utils needs packages:
          basesystem
          glibc
5) Up2date proceeded to re-install basesystem and glibc.

Problem

"rpm -qa | grep basesystem" now produces this output:
basesystem-8.0-2
basesystem-8.0-2

"rpm -qa | grep glibc-2" now produces this output:
glibc-2.3.2-27.9
glibc-2.3.2-27.9

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
Haven't tried to reproduce because I don't want to make a bigger mess of the system.

Additional info:

How do I remove one of the duplicated packages, i.e. how to I make one instance
of basesystem go away?

Comment 1 Michael L. Gantz 2003-08-03 05:23:52 UTC
Additional info:  Tried running "rpm --rebuilddb"  this did not make the
duplicate packages go away.
