Description of problem:
When trying to run up2date, I get the following two updates:
However, the Version and Old Version fields are identical. When attempting to
update I get the following dialog box:
Test install failed because of package conflicts:
package aspell-0.50.3-15 is already installed
package xemacs-el-21.4.13-4 is already installed
If the packages are already installed, I do not see why they continue to come up
as packages to be updated. They should not be on there at all. I was wondering
if there was a problem w/ up2date reading the RPM tables .
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
3.Select the packages to be installed
Actual Results: up2date reports that the packages are already installed even
though they are listed as out-of-date packages.
Expected Results: up2date should not displayed packages that are already
installed on the system.
is this still a problem with current code?
3.9 25 or higher should all be fine
There were some bugs with early version in the beta
miscalcuating needed packages.
Not sure if that is the problem right now. My system has been down for
maintainance, and I have not been able to update any of the packages since I
installed the Beta.
