Description Paul Rhodes 2004-06-09 16:05:50 EDT
Description of problem:

java-1.4.1-ibm- says it obsoletes 
IBMJava2-JRE-1.4.1-8.i386.rpm, IBMJava2-JRE-1.4.1-11.i386.rpm,
IBMJava2-SDK-1.4.1-9.i386.rpm, and IBMJava2-SDK-1.4.1-11.i386.rpm, but
only obsoletes the JRE packages.  It does not install the javac binary
that the SDK packages install (that was just the first thing that
broke, so who knows what else it doesn't install.) 
java-1.4.1-ibm-devel- appears to be the actual package
that obsoletes the SDK packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run up2date and let it uninstall the IBMJava2 packages, and install
the java-1.4.1-ibm-
Actual results:  Does not reinstall everything it uninstalls

Expected results:  Replace the obsoleted binaries

Comment 2 Suzanne Hillman 2004-06-14 10:33:08 EDT
The problem you are running into is that you need to install the
java-devel package as well as the java package, which apparently an
up2date does not take care of.
Comment 3 Paul Rhodes 2004-06-15 17:32:09 EDT
Exactly..... Hence my deduction that the java package does not
obsolete the SDK, but that the java-devel package does.  Am I
misunderstanding the meaning of "obsolete" in the context of packages?
Comment 4 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2004-09-20 11:18:40 EDT
You're right.  The SDK packages should be obsoleted by the java-devel
package only and not by the base package.  This will be fixed in the
next release.
Comment 5 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2004-09-22 11:35:07 EDT
Fixed in package CVS.
