Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 18005
"Upgraded" to older version
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:28:50 EDT
After an upgrade from 6.2 to 7.0, I noticed that the installer had
"upgraded" me from gnupg-1.0.3-1 to gnupg-1.0.2-4.
I also was moved from Helixcode's gnome packages to Redhat's, which was not
a problem by itself, but it did involve downgrading a couple of packages.
I *think* that packages automatically included, such as those needed to
satisfy dependencies are upgraded without checking for versions.
The Helix packages will be upgraded to the Red Hat packages - this is known
Was the previous gnupg installed via a package? The installer should not have
replaced it if it was.
Yes, the helix to redhat Gnome changes were not a surprise. I had installed
gnupg-1.0.3 via RPM, as well as e2fsprogs-1.19.0 and was downgraded to the
versions released with 7.0.
I believe there are others, including some of the gnome libraries (although an
argument can be made that gnome has to be consistent).
I believe that you will find that any packages downgraded during the upgrade
process were in the Base component in RedHat/base/comps - I will investigate to
see if that package set is being accidently turned on during upgrades.
should be fixed by my cvs commit last night.
