Description BEA Boulder 2004-11-10 13:05:37 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
It would be very nice to have redhat-config-packages be capable of 
updating using update ISO's e.g. update RH ES 3 Update 2 to Update 3. 
Support for --isodir is there but "update" button is not functional. 
There are tricks available but this should be supported out of the 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have RH ES 3 Update 2 system
2. Get ISO's for Update 3
3. redhat-config-packages --isodir=$PATH_TO_UPDATE_3_ISOS

Actual Results:  Update button is hobbled

Expected Results:  Update to Update 3

system-config-packages doesn't at present support upgrades.  It's in
the plans for eventually, but requires a fair bit of work to get to be
Comment 2 BEA Boulder 2004-11-10 17:58:28 EST
Thank you for response. Anaconda "linux upgrade" works for RH ES U2 
to U3 update in our environment in spite of the boilerplate warning 
in the release notes.
