Description of problem:
A fresh install of FC5T2, then yum update, yum upgrade gives me two vixie-crons:
$ rpm -q vixie-cron
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Nothing has changed in the vixie-cron .spec file that could cause this.
When yum cannot complete its Update transaction for some reason, it may not
do its "Cleanup" transaction, so duplicates of many packages can remain -
this has happened for me many times. When it does, I manually find all the
duplicate packages and then 'rpm -Uvh --force' the duplicates to the newer
I think if this occurs, yum should at least save a "cleanup" script that
users can run, or should automatically retry a previously failed cleanup
phase on the next run - leaving duplicate instances of packages around is
not a good idea.
Thanks! Filed RFE bug 181055.
