Description nathan.zook 1999-09-02 15:00:41 UTC
Upgrade installation is far too limited.  In particular,
the bash2 package did not upgrade bash.  Also, the lilo
"upgrade" executed as a straight install, which overwrote
the old lilo executable.  (5.2->6.0)  The casual user is
not likely to catch these things. This is without
attempting a full audit.<BR>

In general, during an upgrade, I would like to see options
for "packages not previously available", "packages now part
of default" and the like.

bash2 didn't replace bash, it coexists beside bash1.

the installation suggestions will be addressed at some future point in
time.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-09-08 16:31:59 UTC
I'm preserving this bug by reolving to REMIND and changing the
component to installer.
