Description Need Real Name 2001-02-06 17:22:22 EST
The -F option does not catch the
dependices even if the package is in the arguments list.
For example:
the following command does not work
when doing RedHat 7.0 update:

rpm -Uvh glibc-2.2-12.i386.rpm glibc-common-2.2-12.i386.rpm
glibc-devel-2.2-12.i386.rpm glibc-profile-2.2-12.i386.rpm

it prints that the package glibc-common required.
Comment 1 Need Real Name 2001-02-06 17:26:42 EST
I meant rpm -Fvh , not rpm -Uvh as in the example above.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2001-02-06 17:28:21 EST
The semantics of -F --freshen are
	Install package from command line only if package is already installed.
Since glibc-common is not installed, the package is skipped. This is exactly how
--freshen is supposed to work.
