Description Gene Czarcinski 2000-07-01 07:39:44 EDT
I first found this problem running on a beta1 system and trying to update
the XFree on that system to the XFree on beta2.  I did it with the
following command:
   rpm -Fvh /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/XFree86-*
and got "no packages require freshening"

I duplicated the problem on a beta2 system by installing the
"redhat-release" package from beta1 with:
  rpm -Uvh --oldpackage /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/redhat-release-6.9.0-*
and then tried to freshen with the beta2 package:
  rpm -Fvh /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/redhat-release-6.9.1-*
and got "no packages require freshening" but
  rpm -Uvh /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/redhat-release-6.9.1-*
updated the package.

I believe --freshen is functional in rpm-4.0-0.45. If not, please reopen this
