Description Nicolas CROISET 2000-12-14 06:17:27 EST

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
of different
packages even though they may have the same contents.
Comment 2 Nicolas CROISET 2000-12-17 08:54:48 EST
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.
