Description Scott Gifford 1999-09-30 16:04:11 UTC
The new RPM for kdebase on updates.redhat.com does not
install cleanly onto a basically untouched RedHat system:

[root@sgifford rhlupdate]# rpm -Uvh kde*
error: file /usr/share/icons/desktop.xpm from install of
kdebase-1.1.2-11 conflicts with file from package
fvwm2-icons-2.2-5
error: file /usr/share/icons/folder.xpm from install of
kdebase-1.1.2-11 conflicts with file from package
fvwm2-icons-2.2-5

It installs OK with the --force option.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-09-30 17:35:59 UTC
the errata announcement very clearly describes that this will be the
case and gives directions on how to do the upgrade.

Comment 2 Gilbert E. Detillieux 1999-10-22 19:16:59 UTC
Which errata announcement might that be?  I'm on redhat-announce, but
didn't get it.  I also checked the errata web pages (and searched for
kdebase), and only found RHSA-1999:015-01, dated 1999-06-21 (and not
revised in September).  It doesn't mention any special instructions
on doing the upgrade.  (I assume --force is needed?)

Comment 3 R P Herrold 1999-11-01 17:45:59 UTC
Instead of simply closing a bug, referring to an errata notice without
URI citation, and having a user go away and use --force -- thie
following content might help:



 Conflicts fvwm, fvwm2-icons, fvwm2, AnotherLevel


 [root@printer autorpm]# rpm -Uvh \
 /home/ftp/pub/redhat/updates/6.0/i386/qt1x-1.44-4.i386.rpm \
 /home/ftp/pub/redhat/updates/6.0/i386/qt1x-devel-1.44-4.i386.rpm \
 kdebase-1.1.2-11.i386.rpm

 file /usr/share/icons/desktop.xpm from install of
 kdebase-1.1.2-11 conflicts with file from package
 fvwm2-icons-2.2-5
 file /usr/share/icons/folder.xpm from install of kdebase-1.1.2-11
 conflicts with file from package fvwm2-icons-2.2-5
 [root@printer autorpm]#
 [root@printer autorpm]# rpm -e fvwm2-icons
 error: removing these packages would break dependencies:
                 fvwm2-icons is needed by AnotherLevel-0.9-1
                 fvwm2-icons is needed by fvwm-1.24r-17
                 fvwm2-icons is needed by fvwm2-2.2-5
 [root@printer autorpm]# rpm -e fvwm2-icons AnotherLevel fvwm
 fvwm2

... and THEN

 # rpm -Uvh \
 /home/ftp/pub/redhat/updates/6.0/i386/qt1x-1.44-4.i386.rpm \
 /home/ftp/pub/redhat/updates/6.0/i386/qt1x-devel-1.44-4.i386.rpm \
 kdebase-1.1.2-11.i386.rpm

will work ...
