Description of problem:
The smart mon tools should be separated from kernel-utils as it is a
separatly developed program and is not really a "kernel-util" anyway..
it's a Harddrive monitoring tool.  IT also makes it a *pain* to
upgrade to a newer smartmontools.sf.net release when other packages
depend on kenrel-utils for the other apps provided in that package.

Comment 1 Bruce Allen 2004-09-07 12:57:23 UTC

I totally agree.  This is a copy of a long-standing bug report/request:

Meanwhile, to upgrade to current smartmontools releases, use
-Uvh --force or -ivh --force to overwrite the kernel-utils smartmontools


Comment 2 Edward Rudd 2004-09-08 00:24:26 UTC
I never  --force RPMS.. screws up the dependencies when using any dep
manager (up2date, yum, or apt-get) I personally use the latter (apt)
and usually rebuild the RPMS if I need them fixed the right way.

Marking as a dup and adding my comments to the other bug.
