Not a bug. If you ask the installer to install wu-ftpd (which you do
by selecting to install the networking packages), it should do just

when I ask the installer to UPGRADE to 7.0 from 6.2 and do NOT choose or
change any package than I assume it is just fresh (ie. rpm -F) and the
required packages are installed.
and that's not true, since wu-ftpd was not installed and after the upgrade
it's installed.
Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-02-01 11:42:22 EST
That's what it does... You probably didn't deinstall your old
wu-ftpd package using rpm. The installer uses the rpm database to
figure out which packages you have installed.

Reassigning to anaconda (the installer) so they can check for
sure whether or not there's a problem.
Comment 4 Matt Wilson 2001-04-03 19:02:43 EDT
does proftpd have a "Conflicts: wu-ftpd" in the package?  If not, we try to
offer wu-ftpd as a surrogate parent for /usr/sbin/in.ftpd.  You would need to
deselect wu-ftpd in "customize pacakges to upgrade" if this explicit Conflicts:
is missing from the package.
