Description Mark Gordon 2009-06-08 16:37:59 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

How reproducible:
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
Actual results:
-randr-source gets left behind.  In theory, this doesn't break upgrades, but it does break subsequent downgrades.

Expected results:
-randr-source should get uninstalled automagically when the other xorg-x11-server packages are upgraded.

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.
