RPM upgrade (-F or -U) of nfs-utils fails because a version number is misread
Last modified: 2008-10-27 14:41:37 EDT
When upgrading from nfs-utils-0.1.2-1 to nfs-utils-0.1.9.1 using rpm -Uivh, rpm reports that 0.1.2-1 is *newer* than 0.1.9.1-1. A similar problem
is observed when upgrading to nfs-utils-0.1.6-2. I suspect the issue is with the third level minor revision number, but have not checked the
source for an obvious fix.
This is a nfs-utils packaging problem. Changing component ...
This is one super ancient bug.
I actually consulted Jeff, and he said it's likely the "Epoch" conflict.
The epoch is not visible in the RPM name, so SRPMs need to be compared.
If so, it's a bug, but since we are shipping 8.0 now, it's not something
I'm eager to investigate in detail.
