Hmm, yeah. The "old version" in the gui doesnt take
packages with multiple versions installed into
effect. 

I'll take a look.

This is fixed in HEAD and ERRATA_RHEL3_U1.  AS2.1 doesn't actually
display the old version, so it wasn't fixed there.

If you have multiple versions of the same package on your box, up2date
will now always display the latest version in the GUI.

In RHEL-3WS, up2date-4.2.16-1 (13-MAY-04) still has a related problem.
 I have:
-----
$ rpm -qa | grep kernel
kernel-2.4.21-9.0.1.EL
kernel-2.4.21-15.EL
kernel-2.4.21-9.0.1.EL.perfctr2.6.6
kernel-pcmcia-cs-3.1.31-13
kernel-2.4.21-9.0.3.EL
kernel-utils-2.4-8.37.5
kernel-smp-2.4.21-9.0.1.EL.perfctr2.6.6
$ 
-----
and in "Packages Flagged to be Skipped", graphical up2date still lists
-----
[Package]    [Version]      [Old Version]
kernel       2.4.21-15.EL   2.4.21-9.0.3.EL
kernel-smp   2.4.21-15.EL   2.4.21-9.0.1.EL
-----
which is confusing because kernel-2.4.21-15.EL [UniProcessor] is
already installed.  If I don't check the box to Skip
kernel-2.4.21-15.EL, then I get a large window (too tall to fit on the
screen) complaining that many files in 2.4.21-15.EL conflict with the
versions that are already installed from 2.4.21-15.EL.

I don't know whether the part that confuses up2date is not having
matching pairs of UP and SMP kernels with the same versions, or having
the set:
-----
kernel-2.4.21-9.0.1.EL
kernel-2.4.21-9.0.1.EL.perfctr2.6.6
kernel-2.4.21-9.0.3.EL
kernel-2.4.21-15.EL
-----
all installed at the same time.  Notice that the Old Version chosen by
up2date is the third one (9.0.3-EL).


Comment 6 John Thacker 2006-10-29 09:51:47 EST
Should be fixed in all current releases of up2date, including on RHEL3
