Description Havoc Pennington 2001-01-13 21:18:38 EST
6.2 system just upgraded to 7.0. Was using latest up2date bugfix errata on
6.2, just installed latest up2date errata for 7.0. up2date -u complains
that ['libk5crypto.so.3'] depends on libk5crypto.so.3, which makes no sense
to me, especially since that file exists on my system.

[root@rdu25-4-135 pkgs]# up2date -u
