Description of problem:
since the release of fedora core 1 (it was working with the test
releases), up2date has not been able to recognize that packages I have
installed from RH9 need updating.  These packages are the kernel RPMs
and rp-pppoe (these are the only packages I have not updated from
RH9).  yum correctly sees these packages as needing updating:

# yum check-update
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora.us-stable
Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Base
Server: Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)
Server: Red Hat Linux 9 NewRPMS.sunsite.dk
Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Released Updates

rp-pppoe                            i386   3.5-8                    base

however up2date does not see these packages as needing updating.  This
problem first started to occur with the release of fedora core 1 (it
worked properly with test 3).

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

How reproducible:

Actual Results:  up2date does not recognize the RH9 package as needing
