Description David Juran 2005-03-23 08:21:17 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.3) Gecko/20050104 Red Hat/1.4.3-3.0.7

Description of problem:
I have a RHEL4 WS machine installed fresh from the installation disks. Now when I try to up2date -u on it I get a list of packages which it wants to update, The peculiar thing is that this list contains gcc-3.4.3-9.EL4.x86_64 which already is 
installed. And then up2date dies with the message:

RPM package conflict error.  The message was:
Test install failed because of package conflicts:
package gcc-3.4.3-9.EL4 is already installed

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install a machine fresh
2.run up2date
