Description Krzysio (Chris) Leszczynski 2001-11-03 07:24:00 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.2.1) Gecko/20010901

Description of problem:
I have installed kernel-2.4.9-7 and kernel-2.4.9-13, now up2date
redownloads kernel-2.4.9-13 each time I run up2date.

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

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Install any two releases of the same package (kernel is a good
example).

Actual Results:  up2date sees only the first reelases and tries to upgrade
it even if the next version is already installed..

Expected Results:  I would expect up2date to check the presence of all
release. Perhaps it should warn about such things and offer the possibility
to remove one of them. I am not sure whether it should.

Additional info:

I believe the bug will disapear just after I reboot the machine and delete
the old kernel. But I must keep the old kernel until I reboot the machine.

This is indeed a bug. Should be fixed in the next release of the package.

Oddest part is that the package that's being offered *should* have been removed
from the list of available updates ... or is that the bug?

(That shouldn't have been repeated, sorry ... going to file a bug against
bugzilla now ...)
Comment 5 Adrian Likins 2001-11-06 14:53:50 EST
Yeah, thats the problem. Basically, because of their being multiple
kernel packages installed, it seems the old one and thinks it needs
to be updated.

This used to work, but some changes to make stuff more picky about
package arch broke the code that detects this case.
