Description Dave Miller 2005-03-13 20:26:22 EST
There was recently an errata issued for gaim.  I didn't know we had
gaim on said servers, and we have no reason for it to be there, so
instead of applying the errata, I went to the package lists for the
affected systems and queued the gaim package to be removed.  RHN
reports that the package removal was successful, however, it still
lists those systems as needing the errata, even though gaim is no
longer installed, and it should know that since the package removal
was requested via RHN and not done manually.
Comment 1 Dave Miller 2005-03-13 20:29:21 EST
Logging into one of said systems and performing "up2date -p"
successfully cleared the errata from that system.  This would make
sense if I had run rpm -e from the system to get rid of it, but since
RHN itself asked the system to remove the package, it should have
already known that.
