Description Bill Nottingham 2003-11-25 17:15:00 EST
Machine has:

[root@devserv i386]# rpm -q python2 python
python2-2.1.1-6beehive
python-2.2.3-5

up2date says:

The following Packages are obsoleted by newer packages:
 
Name-Version-Release        obsoleted by      Name-Version-Release
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
python2-2.1.1-6beehive                  python-2.2.3-5

and then tries to install python-2.2.3-5, which fails:
