Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1796
Why Does a upgrade blow away my non-redhat rpms ???

This is very broken,
now I have to track down all of my old rpms :(
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?

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?
What's the matter exactly? Use whole sentences.
