Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 602375
Yum performed incorrect N-V-R comparison for NetworkManager
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:15:01 EST
Description of problem:
During the F-13 beta process, the following packages were shipped:
These were upgraded in F-13 final:
NetworkManager to 0.8.1-0.1.git20100510.fc13.x86_64
initscripts to 9.12-1.fc13.x86_64
However, using yum to update NetworkManager fails, apparently 0.8.0 ">=" 0.8.1. updating initscripts fails as it conflicts with NM 0.8.0 (so the failure to update NM blocks the initscripts update).
Updating via rpm -Uvh works as expected
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download the older NM and initscripts RPMs from Koji
2. rpm -Uvh --oldpackage them
3. yum update NetworkManager
4. yum update initscripts
#3 does not update anything. #4 fails because of file conflicts with NM.
Should work fine
you need to provide A LOT more information here.
Specifically what is the failure that you received from yum?
yum --disablerepo=updates list initscripts NetworkManager\*
As I said in email, it's not a yum bug if you exclude packages and then can't update them.
Apologies -- turns out I did add an exclusion back in March, and had forgotten about it in the meantime.
