Description aap 1999-03-25 19:21:25 UTC
This is very broken,

now I have to track down all of my old rpms :(

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-03-25 20:35:59 UTC
On an upgrade, rpm only replaces packages that it thinks are
"newer". Your old rpms appeared older and consequently were
replaced. Is this the problem?

Comment 2 Preston Brown 1999-03-29 19:43:59 UTC
bonnie isn't included in the red hat linux distribution, so I am
somewhat surprised that the installer removed it.  Unless there is a
bug in the RPM code.  Matt, Jeff, what do you make of this?  Is there
any way that this could have happened?  Is the binary still physically
there, and just the entry has been removed from the rpm database, or
did the package actually get entirely removed from your disk?

*pokes drew*

What's the matter exactly?  Use whole sentences.
