xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.0.1-9.fc5.4.x86_64.rpm version problem
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:36 EST
Description of problem:
The latest version of this RPM in updates (fc5.4) cannot be installed manually
as it complains that a newer version (fc5.1.1) is already installed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -U xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.0.1-9.fc5.4.x86_64.rpm
package xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.0.1-9.fc5.1.1 (which is newer than
xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.0.1-9.FC5.4) is already installed
That the latest package in the update directory would install given a system
that is fully up-to-date using "yum update"
Manual installation, as above, was tried as yum hasn't picked up the
package - possibly because of the above problem.
Latest in updates is 1.0.1-9.fc5.5 which is rpmnewer than any of the package
versions mentioned here.
