Description of problem:
Fedora 8 comes with the following packages:

and the care coming up as "newer" (as an epoch obviously was
not bumped up). To replace them with F8 packages one has to
use 'rpm --oldpackage -Uvh netpbm*f8*.rpm'.
One is left with "orphans" does not matter if an update was
run with a help of anaconda or with 'yum update'.
Oh, I believe that updating from F7 gets into the same predicament.
Yes, the update to f8 was not yet pushed. It will be pushed shortly. Thanks for
