RFE: Name conflict with web site: Should we have an obsoletes tag?
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:56 EST
Description of problem:
For several years, I have been grabbing the RPMs for eterm off of the website
http://www.eterm.org/. I very recently discovered to my delight that FC6 now
had a package for it. Now this is perhaps a *very* small nit, but the RPMs that
I have grabbed from eterm.org have always produced a rpm with the name Eterm,
not eterm as is currently in extras. Should we have some sort of obsoletes tag
for all of the people like me who have been using the RPMs from eterm.org?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Eterm RPM from eterm.org
2.Run "yum install eterm"
yum says that it will only install the eterm package, but not remove the Eterm
It would be nice if yum were to upgrade Eterm to eterm.
I don't think I want to add obsoletes tag against other repos Eterm
package. If Fedora had a package named Eterm before I would consider it.
I don't think Fedora ever did. (But Red Hat 6.2-7.2 did. ;-)
No more traffic here, closing as wont fix.
