Description Jamie Manley 2000-10-01 05:09:10 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.
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-02 18:32:39 EDT
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.
Comment 2 Jamie Manley 2000-10-03 01:58:49 EDT
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).
Comment 3 Matt Wilson 2000-10-03 08:22:51 EDT
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.
