Description of problem:
When a new system is installed in "http" mode, and both "Updates" and
"Test Updates" have been added to the repository list, a mixture of
old and new packages gets installed even breaking dependencies of some
packages. A post install run of "yum" displays > 130 packages scheduled
for update which hadn't been recognized by "yum" during install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install "FC6" over the network enabling updates and test updates.
After install, "yum" indicates that another > 130 packages remain to be
All available updates get selected during the install procedure.
Dependencies do not get resolved correctly, as the attached "install.log"
shows. For example, "cups-1.2.4-9" and "cups-libs-1.2.10-1" are installed
on the system which is weird.
The same happens using the "F7T1" rescue disk. Changing mirrors also
doesn't help, not even using "download.fedora.redhat.com".
