Description Derek Tattersall 2001-02-17 17:06:14 EST
After a successful up2date frpm Fisher to Wolverine, /var/spool/up2date
still contained the headers to the kernel packages.  I was told that
up2date should remove all excess files on completion.
Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2001-02-17 19:55:22 EST
header files are only removed after a succesful package installation.
Since the kernel packages were not actually installed, the
headers werent removed. 

I suppose it's debateable if this is desired behaviour or not,
but as far as I'm concerned, it's working as designed. 

other opinions welcome...

desired behaviour, these are cached.
