Description of problem:
The recently released security update for wu-ftpd under RH6.2 has an
earlier version than the previous update (wu-ftpd-2.6.1-6), so "rpm -i -U"
fails. A workaround is to use "--oldpackage". This is a big deal, since
we'll soon see worms out there exploiting the bug fixed in the new package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update wu-ftpd with the previous security update rpm
2. Try to install the latest wu-ftp update (wu-ftpd-2.6.1-0.6x.21.i386.rpm)
Actual Results: # rpm -i -U wu-ftpd-2.6.1-0.6x.21.i386.rpm
package wu-ftpd-2.6.1-6 (which is newer than wu-ftpd-2.6.1-0.6x.21) is
wu-ftpd-2.6.1-6.i386.rpm has not been released as a 6.2 errata. The previous
6.2 errata was wu-ftpd-2.6.0-14.6x.i386.rpm .
