Description of problem:
At the beginning of an upgrade the installer displays a warning dialog stating
that some third party packages overlap with RH7.3 packages, but it doesn't tell
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.install other stuff overlapping with RH packages (if I could tell what, I
wouldn't be written this report)
3.upgrade to RH7.3
Actual Results: Display of noninformative warning during upgrade.
Expected Results: The installer should have shown which third party packages
overlap with RH7.3 packages, and how.
Like bug #64828, this does remind one a bit too much of the software
install/uninstall on MS Win. The warning dialog seems to be present for blame
allocation rather than for informing the user.
Logged now. Displaying would be an absurd dialog.
