The installallation  of powertweak-gtk-0.99.0-2.i386.rpm aborts with 

error: failed dependencies:
	sysctlconfig conflicts with powertweak-gtk-0.99.0-2

I can't find any conflict in the list of files to install and

We (Red Hat) should really fix this before next release
Comment 5 Arjan van de Ven 2001-02-05 03:59:42 EST
No, We (Red Hat) should not. The problem is that there is nothing to fix.
sysctlconfig _does_ conflict with powertweak. They do the same thing, except
that powertweak also has the potential to tweak other things than just kernel 
/proc settings.
Comment 6 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-02-05 06:33:00 EST
Fixed by adding Conflicts: sysctlconfig Obsoletes: sysctlconfig to main package
