Description of problem:

The current cman package does not conflict with earlier gfs2-utils packages despite the fact that it is incompatible with those packages. The spec file need to be updated.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

[root@men-an-tol steve]# rpm -qi cman
Name        : cman                         Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version     : 2.99.08                           Vendor: Fedora Project
Release     : 1.fc10                        Build Date: Tue 12 Aug 2008 09:50:12 AM BST
Install Date: Wed 03 Sep 2008 03:54:45 PM BST      Build Host: x86-4

Size        : 2777868                          License: GPLv2+ and LGPLv2+

Packager    : Fedora Project

Summary     : Red Hat Cluster Manager
Description :
Red Hat Cluster Manager

How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install cman from rawhide over an older distro, e.g. f-9 which already has gfs2-utils installed
Actual results:

Installs ok, but fails to work

Expected results:

Should refuse to install cman until conflict with earlier gfs2-utils is resolved.

Comment 1 Fabio Massimo Di Nitto 2008-09-19 06:25:55 EDT
As discussed on IRC, partial upgrades from major distro release to major distro release are not supported (or at least i can't find any reference in the Fedora documentation that state differently).

Upgrading from F9 to F10 will pull in the right packages in the right versions.

Anyway if there is a reference that we should support partial upgrades, please let me know because the Conflicts: complexity is way higher than just gfs2-utils.
