Description "FeRD" (Frank Dana) 2020-12-21 13:27:51 UTC
Description of problem:
The latest kernelshark-1.2-1.fc33 package will not automatically install using dnf, because its version number is lower than the previous kernelshark-2.8.3-4.fc33 package. This blocks upgrades of the trace-cmd package to the latest 2.9.1-4.fc33 builds, because kernelshark-2.8.3-4.fc33 requires trace-cmd-2.8.3-4.fc33.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf install kernelshark
2. dnf upgrade trace-cmd
3. dnf downgrade kernelshark-1.2-1.fc33

Actual results:
1: installs kernelshark-2.8.3-4.fc33
2: attempts to upgrade to trace-cmd-2.9.1, fails
3: succeeds, unblocks trace-cmd upgrade

Expected results:
'dnf install kernelshark' installs latest version automatically

Additional info:
kernelshark will need an Epoch bump to kernelshark-1:1.2-2.fc33, in order to receive install priority over kernelshark-2.8.3-4.fc33.
