Description of problem:
when running updates on RHEL 3 WS, up2date would detect newer versions
of openoffice (namely openoffice.org-1.1.0-16.7.EL) but it would
complain of openoffice already installed when trying to install.
Updates would then stop.
Upon logging into RHN, I can verify two different sets of package
names for openoffice which could be causing the issues:
openoffice-1.0.2-8 OpenOffice.org comprehensive office suite.
openoffice-i18n-1.0.2-8 OpenOffice.org internationalization
openoffice-libs-1.0.2-8 OpenOffice.org shared libraries
openoffice.org-1.1.0-16.7.EL OpenOffice.org comprehensive
openoffice.org-i18n-1.1.0-16.7.EL OpenOffice.org internationalization
openoffice.org-libs-1.1.0-16.7.EL OpenOffice.org shared libraries
For example, if the customer already has openoffice-1.0.2-8 installed
and then sees a package in RHN like openoffice.org-1.1.0-16.7.EL, it
would not install the newer version because of conflicts, right?
This issue is with regards to CRM 333738.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
openoffice-1.0.2-8 openoffice.org-1.1.0-16.7.EL CRM 333738
This is not an OOo issue (probably) as the openoffice.org RPMs have
had the correct Obsoletes: in them since the beginning. Over to up2date.
This should be fixed with the 3u7 update.
