Description Xander D Harkness 2004-01-02 05:34:58 EST
Description of problem:
When upgrading from Red Hat 9 to RHEL3 the RHEL3 redhat-release rpm is
considered older than that of RH9.  As a consequence following the
upgrade the release version is still Red Hat 9 (shrike)

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

How reproducible:
On all three upgrades I have done.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use up2date --nox --configure to set VersionOverRide to 3ES and run
up2date -uf
2. Force install of db4 and db4-utils (as dependencies broken)
3. Run up2date -uf a final time to complete upgrade.  The console will
report the kernel as being:
Red Hat Linux release 9 (shrike)
Kernel 2.4.21...EL on an i686  
Actual results:

Expected results:

While it should work, upgrades from Red Hat Linux to RHEL aren't supported and 
there are some known areas where this is known to break (this is one of them).
