Description Cameron Harr 2007-06-01 17:25:07 UTC
I've noticed that there are several rpms included in the f7 (still show "fc7"
rpms)distribution that have fc6 tags. Some of these are keyutils-libs and

In the past, when I've updated (fc5-fc6, etc), I've gotten conflicts because of
packages that existed with both fc5 tags and fc6 tags. My solution was to "rpm
-e `rpm -qa | grep fc5`" and that pretty much worked. I did that with my new fc7
update and fc6 rpms, but it messed up the box because some of the needed rpms
are fc6 rpms. In trying to "fix" it, I'm left without a functional X install.
I'll admit that what I did was dangerous and bad and I'll slap myself, but my
personal opinion is that all rpms should be labled as fc7 (or f7) rpms. Is there
a reason they are not? Thx
