Description of problem:
Running up2date detects new perl rpm, but installing it fails.

Perl installation has only been manipulated with the installer and possibly up2date.

This isn't an up2date bug, per:
https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2005-May/msg00047.html

Comment 2 jørgen nørgaard 2005-05-06 09:43:56 UTC
On x86_64 perl-5.8.5 is twice


A work-around is to remove perl from the rpm database and then run up2date.

(like: rpm --justdb --nodeps --allmatches -e perl-5.8.5)

This is non-destructive in the way that installed files are not touched. The rpm database appears to be 
correct after up2date

Aterwards "yum list perl" indicates that only x86_64 is installed.



Comment 3 jørgen nørgaard 2005-05-06 09:45:30 UTC
Obviously not a bug in up2date.
