Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 22290
rpm is case sensitive
Last modified: 2009-09-08 10:09:31 EDT
For example if I install MySQL.3.22.32-1.i386.rpm (find on mysql.com) instead of mysql-3.23.24-1.i386.rpm...
Then if I want to install something else where there is dependencies with this package, or if I want to rebuild php-4.0.3pl1-4.src.rpm (with the
option --rebuild), it's impossible to do this because the dependencies fail (so I must use the option --nodeps to rebuild and install).
So is it possible to find a solution for this problem.
rpm, like most unix utilities, is case sensitive, so MySQL and mysql are names
packages even though they may have the same contents.
So is it possible to redhat to respect the case of the original package of mysql, and put in redhat MySQL package not mysql, and the problem is solve.
