Description Robert Scheck 2006-06-23 09:40:58 EDT
Description of problem:
Syslinux-devel package was merged back into the main package for 3.11-2, but
the -devel package isn't obsoleted, causing:

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

How reproducible:
Everytime after upgrade from 3.10-5 to 3.11-2

Actual results:
Syslinux doesn't obsolete syslinux-devel package

next update.

This has to be fixed until FC6, especially when users are upgrading.
Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2006-08-22 10:21:52 EDT
Added an obsoletes.  Built into rawhide.
