Description Daniel Qarras 2007-12-29 10:59:50 EST
Description of problem:
It would be useful to have a method in the rpm command to check what packages
are being obsoleted or conflicted by a package. It can of course be checked from
the spec file but that is not very efficient, adding few query flags would be
more elegant.

They exist as popt aliases (see /usr/lib/rpm/rpmpopt* 

rpm -q --obsoletes perl
rpm -qp --conflicts /path/to/confliting-1.0.noarch.rpm
