Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 21410
Cannot override file conflict
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:03 EDT
when upgrading a package and a file conflict is found, hitting
yes in the "Are you sure you wish to continue" dialog fails to
continue the installation- forcing the user to resort to the
command line version. I encountered this problem with
/usr/share/pixmaps/netscape.png conflicting between the latest
helixcode gnome-core package and the latest netscape packages,
as well as several times before. Dependancy problem dialogs
work fine, with "yes" properly continuing the install/upgrade.
You know I also have another gripe in that whenever upgrading
rpms that come with the initial install, I always get this dumb
"package README not listed in file index" dialog box which
seems gratuitously annoying.
That second error should go away if you install the errata RPM, I do
All the available errata updates for RPM and gnorpm have been installed.
The warning dialog still appears whenever upgrading an RPM that comes with
the original installation- which is why I mentioned it there. Subsequent
upgrades to rpm's that have been upgraded before (such as netscape) do not
trigger the warning. It is not necesarrily a bug in rpm or gnorpm- it could
just be a quirky build of the rpm's that constitute RH6.2, and the warning
would be appropriate considering that the original rpms were misbuilt...
Does anybody reading this have RH7.0 and use gnorpm to upgrade errata rpms?
Do you get the warning dialog mentioned above the first time you upgrade
an rpm that came with the RH7.0 CD install?
Works in my version (0.96-1), which is in 7.1, marking fixed. Please upgrade
gnorpm if you want this fixed.
