Description Fulton Green 2003-10-09 12:34:42 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031003

Description of problem:
I cannot cleanly replace (i.e., 'rpm -U') the older openoffice-* packages with
the newer openoffice.org-* packages without first uninstalling the older packages.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take a clean Fedora Core test2 box.
2. Download the newer openoffice.org packages.
3. Attempt to upgrade the packages using 'rpm -U'.

Actual Results:  RPM reports several conflicts between the newer and older
versions of several files within the openoffice.org-libs and openoffice.org-i18n
packages.  I don't recall seeing any conflicts for the core openoffice.org package.

Expected Results:  A clean upgrade.

Additional info:

This is most likely an issue with how the openoffice.org supporting packages
(not the core package) were built.  I suspect that the core openoffice.org
package knows it's supposed to replace the core openoffice package, but that the
other two .org packages don't know that they're supposed to replace their
openoffice equivalents.

<sigh />

I WOULD have to be the one to log this bug BEFORE checking for newer versions of
the openoffice.org packages.

Fixed in 1.1.0-2. :)
