Hmm and what is the problem when you use "yum upgrade tcpdump"?
Comment 3 Bill Jones 2006-02-03 11:30:42 EST
Please note that this error is discovered immediately after a "fresh install."

But, basically whether I use "install or upgrade/update", yum says it hates
itself and commits suicide.

Seriously, since I do not have access to the Internet on that PPC system I'll
force the mirror I use to re-download it and check it again tonight.

I'm in the process of preparing a system test for PPC FC5Test3 -- I'll see if
this is an issue after I've got a working system.

Comment 5 Martin Stransky 2006-03-21 09:28:41 EST
any news?
Comment 6 Bill Jones 2006-03-21 09:43:21 EST
Sorry for the delay; yes, the latest header in "development" does install and
uninstall the tcpdump package correctly.  However that was tested on the i386 --
I cannot test the PPC version as I no longer have a PPC to test the FC5 stuff with.

I vote setting this to "resolved" and wait to see if anyone else reports a
PPC-centric problem.
