Description Illtud Daniel 2003-12-12 10:02:08 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.4)

Description of problem:
I've got an rpm installed, but I want the srpm. up2date --src <package>
fails with 'package is already installed'. Sensible behaviour would be
to download the srpm.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. up2date <package>
2. up2date --src <package>

Actual Results:  fails with 'already installed'

Expected Results:  getting <package>.srpm

working as designed, more or less. Ie,
it doesnt let you download a package set
that you couldn't install. 

Newer versions (fedora or RHEL 3) include
a --get-source option that will download the
source rpm without doing any depsolving.
