Description of problem:
coreutils 5.2.0-2 from development/rawhide drops (does not include)
/usr/bin/kill which is required by redhat-lsb
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2004-02-21 12:45:07 EST
Fixed in coreutils-5.2.0-4.
Comment 2 Brian Millett 2004-02-28 15:50:13 EST
Guess what, its back!!

2/28/04 yum update from rawhide.

Package redhat-lsb needs /usr/bin/kill, this is not available.

coreutils installed is coreutils-5.2.0-7
Comment 3 Gene Czarcinski 2004-02-28 16:16:28 EST
Actually, it is not.  /usr/bin/kill has been deleted from coreutils
and added to util-linux.  The updated util-linux-2.12-4 package is in

Unfortunately, the individual who defined the version-release for the
util-linux package in FC2-T1 base created a bit of a monster -- it is
util-linux-2.12pre-3.  This looks "newer" than util-linux-2.12-4 so
up2date and rpm ignore it.

You need to manually download and then rpm -Uvh --force core... util...

This anoyed me so I put a report in
