Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 504698
old xorg-x11-server-randr-source left installed after upgrade
Last modified: 2013-07-28 19:40:51 EDT
Description of problem:
The xorg-x11-server-randr-source package went away, which I understand was intentional, but since no package Obsoletes xorg-x11-server-randr-source, a previously installed xorg-x11-server-randr-source would remain in place.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.1.1-48.64.el5 is the latest build, and it's been broken since the change from 1.1.1-48.52.el5
Completely, iff xorg-x11-server-randr-source is installed.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to upgrade from xorg-x11-server-*-1.1.1-48.52.el5 to xorg-x11-server-*-1.1.1-48.64.el5
-randr-source gets left behind. In theory, this doesn't break upgrades, but it does break subsequent downgrades.
-randr-source should get uninstalled automagically when the other xorg-x11-server packages are upgraded.
Devel ack, trivial.

Tested updating to the new packages. xorg-x11-server-randr-source now gets uninstalled automagically on upgrade of xorg-x11-server-Xorg. I'm happy.
