From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.2)
Description of problem:
I run the udate agent. It list many XFree 86 packages as needing to be
installed (mainly fonts and the likes). I run the update. An error
message comes up that states, "Warning Test install failed because of
package conflicts: package XFree86-4.2.1-23 is already installed"
How do I get the update agent to recognize the XFree86 packages that
are already installed when I launch the update agent? Thanks. Troy Large
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.click on the update agent icon
2.click on "launch Up2date"
3.click on "forward" (which is done twice)
4. click on "select all packages" (many XFree86 packages are listed)
5. click on "forward"
Actual Results: After some grinding, the warning message "test
install failed because of package conflicts : package XFree86-4.2.1-23
is already installed" comes up
Expected Results: a) it should not show the XFree86 packages as
needing updated to start with....????
A security thing came out, not long ago, over XFree86. I updated at
that time, got the packages loaded, then it went to install and froze
up half way through the install part (top bar went to 100%, then it
froze so bottom bar never did reach 100%, or any % for that matter).
Had this problem ever sense.
