Comment 1 Kevin Otte 2004-01-20 15:56:52 EST
up2date --showall --channel=foo is also broken.

At this point we have no way of installing all packages in a requested
Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2004-01-20 16:48:04 EST
fix is in up2date-4.2.7, whenever it becomes available.
Comment 3 Chip Turner 2004-01-20 17:01:13 EST
There are a few workarounds.  The easiest for most users is:

up2date --showall --show-channel | grep CHANNEL-LABEL | perl -lane
'print $F[0]' | xargs up2date
Comment 4 Kevin Otte 2004-01-20 17:34:40 EST
Actually, you still have to strip the version off $0.  The full
command would be something on the order of:

up2date $(up2date --showall --show-channel | grep CHANNEL-LABEL | perl
-lane 'print $F[0]'|sed -e 's/-[^-]*-[^-]*$//' | uniq)

patch to make installall work

After running into this bug, but before I went searching in bugzilla, I came up
with this patch.  It's trivial to manually apply if you don't like the
workaround already given.

Any ETA on getting an errata out on this? The version that shipped w/
RHEL3 (up2date-4.0.1-1) didn't have this problem.

Comment 8 Adrian Likins 2004-03-22 16:34:09 EST
u2 update pack will have a fix for this.
