Description Alexandre Oliva 2004-08-24 19:07:02 UTC
Description of problem:
Starting from bind-9.2.4rc7-7 man-pages-1.66-2 installed on the
system, running up2date to a local (file://) yum repository containing
today's rawhide (headers generated locally with yum-arch), up2date
reports a file conflict for the resolver man page, but installing
man-pages-1.67-2 with rpm before or after running up2date -u
--exclude=man-pages, that updates to bind-9.2.4-EL4_1, neither up2date
nor rpm report any conflict whatsoever.

It appears that up2date is being overly conservative in its conflict

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2004-08-26 19:51:14 UTC
is this a multilib box?

Comment 2 Alexandre Oliva 2004-08-27 13:01:48 UTC
Nope, pure i386.

Comment 3 Barry K. Nathan 2004-10-25 09:44:19 UTC
It could also be that RPM is too liberal now (as opposed to up2date
being too conservative). See bug 131766 for more info on RPM's
behavior change.

Comment 4 Barry K. Nathan 2004-10-25 10:36:05 UTC
OBTW, yum 2.1.10's file conflict behavior seems to match up2date's (in
my experience anyway).

Comment 5 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 22:34:30 UTC
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

up2date is no longer available in newer releases.
