Description Tuomo Soini 2005-03-23 09:26:10 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050302 Firefox/1.0.1 Foobar/1.0.1-1.4.3.foo

Description of problem:
yum upgrade from rhel-3 rh-postgresql to rhel-4 postgresql fails because
wrong package obsoletes rh-postgresql-SUB_PACKAGE:s.

postgresql package obsoletes all rh-postgresql-* sub-packages while
postgresql-server should obsolete rh-postgresql-server.

Currently postgresql package has obsoletes for all sub-packages so update will remove all sub-packages leaving system without postgresql-server.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. have rhel-3
2. yum update to rhel-4
3. there is no postgresql-server package (or other postgresql-*) sub-packages.

Actual Results:  postgresql and postgresql-libs packages are installed on system. but all other sub-packages are missing.

Expected Results:  If rpm tag:

Obsoletes: rh-postgresql-server

was in correct sub-package, upgrade would have worked.

And same goes for other sub-packages.
postgresql-tcl should obsolete rh-postgresql-tcl etc.
