Description Adrian Likins 2004-08-17 17:45:35 UTC
This is a workaround for a bug in up2date-4.2.16 (version
   included in Update 3 for RHEL 3). That version fails to
  update the up2date package when scheduled from the website
  (commandline or gui useage is fine). In order to enable
  customers to update "up2date" via the RHN web interface,
  this package requires a up2date >= 4.2.33. User can
  choose to install this package, and the newer up2date
  will be installed as a dependency. The new up2date
  will be correct, and the "up2date-update" package can
  then be removed.

Test plan:

Put the new up2date (4.2.36 or higher) into a channel
(child channel is fine)

Install up2date-4.2.16 on a rhel3 box.

attempt to update to newest update via an action
that schedules up2date only. This will fail.

Then try to install the "up2date-update" package.
This will schedule an action for "up2date-update" that
should pull in the newer up2date as a dep. 

Then do basic sanity checks on up2date. 

Then we need to push an even newer up2date package
into the channel. Then we need to verify that
up2date-4.2.36 can be updated to (for example)
via a "update" action on just the up2date package. 

Then downgrade to up2date-4.2.36, then update 
up2date manually "aka, up2date up2date". 

Repeat, but this time with "up2date -u".

Repeat but this time with the gui.

see /mnt/redhat/beehive/comps/dist/3.0E-scratch/up2date/
for version to verify that 4.2.36 can update itself.
