Description Magnus Johansson 2001-03-17 03:06:24 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2 i686; en-US; 0.7) Gecko/20010203

When selecting to upgrade Xconfigurator to version 4.9.19 release 1,
up2date crashes completely with an error message:
"There was a fatal RPM error. The message was:
The package kudzu-0.97.6-1 conflicts with: mouseconfig"

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run up2date on a 7.1 Beta 2 system with kudzu-0.97.6-1 installed
2.Select Xconfigurator 4.9.19-1 to be installed
3.Click Next.

Actual Results:  Error message shows up, and up2date crashes completely.

Expected Results:  Conflict should have been reported without up2date crashing.

Comment 1 Adrian Likins 2001-03-19 19:12:58 UTC
was there any other error message other than the report that there
was a conflict in the package set? If it existed after this, then that
is the currently expected behaviour. If there was a traceback or other
error messages, then this is unexpected.

Better handling of conflicts is going to be worked on for the next version.

This particular conflict seems to be an error in the package set that
is available on the beta server that probable needs to get resolved.

Comment 2 Magnus Johansson 2001-03-20 02:46:10 UTC
No other error message was reported than the conflict. When I pressed Ok in the
message dialog box, the up2date-application was terminated. A more reasonable
behavior would have been to continue with other packages selected and just skip
the one that had a conflict.

It also took a while to pin-point which selected package to upgrade that had the
conflict. This was never reported, only the one already installed package was
