User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.3) Gecko/20010808

Description of problem:
During system upgrade from 7.1 to 7.2 - Metro Link Motif packages,
already on system are corrupted when the upgrade process installs
LessTif.  Specifically, the file /usr/bin/mwm belonging to package
motif-mwm-2.1-2glibc is overwritten by the LessTiff version of that file.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Get 7.1. Without LessTif.
2.Install motif from Metro Link (window manager, libraries, development files).
3.Upgrade to 7.2 - Lesstiff selected to satisfy dependencies.

Actual Results:  System upgrade happened normally, but found that the Metro
Motif Window Manager had been replaced by the LessTiff version.

Expected Results:  A conflict between Lesstif and Metro Link Motif RPM
packages should
have been detected during the upgrade process - the Metro Link Motif
package should not have been corrupted.

i don't know about motif from metrolink. we don't have it in our RHL.
To fix this problem, i need more infos about motif packages from metrolink.
Please give name of motif packages and the output of rpm -qpl motif-packages-name
