Kernel obsoletes existing Driver Updates on install
Last modified: 2009-01-20 15:13:11 EST
Description of problem:
Add RPM-level Obsoletes as a way of requiring existing driver updates shipped during RHEL5.2 to be uninstalled post-5.2, upon installation of 5.3 updates.
Created attachment 317059 [details]
Add virtual "Obsoletes" dependencies to the kernel package
Note, these are not done as numerical versions specifically in order to handle the design of virtual provides. We could also simply add a kernel provides saying "Provides: rhel-kernel: 5.3" for example.
You can download this test kernel from http://people.redhat.com/dzickus/el5
