Description of problem:
setools-1.2.1-6 removes setools-devel from being distributed but it
does not Obsolete the package so up2date does not know to delete the
OK, I am closing this since it appears to be fixed in rawhide. I
updated another system today with setools-1.2.1-7 which had the old
setools-devel installed and it was deleted.
However, I did hit a speed bump in that when up2date/rpm was
processing the setools package it got an rpm error and the whole
process terminated. This left the update status a bit screwed up. I
was updating a bumch of packages which included kernel-* and
setools-*. When I manually "rpm -q" for various packages, kernel,
kernel-docs, kernel-source, setools, and setools-gui were not
installed (the remaining packages were the updated versions.
To make sure everything was OK, I manually ran "rpm -Uvh --force" to
install/reinstall each of the packages in the set being. I am going
to try and reproduce it (reinstall the old setools-* and then use
up2date). If I can I will bugzilla it.
