Description of problem:
Upgrading rpmdb-redhat from Fedora test fails since the currently installed
package has a higher version number.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -U rpmdb-redhat-0.94-0.20030924.i386.rpm
Actual Results: Error message:
package rpmdb-redhat-9.0.93-0.20030718 (which is newer than
rpmdb-redhat-0.94-0.20030924) is already installed
Expected Results: It ought to install.
An epoch is needed, just as for redhat-release, I guess.
Ack, thanks. Maybe comps too.
