Description Paul Bolle 2010-11-23 08:27:54 EST
Description of problem:
dhclient doesn't obsolete dhcpv6-client-2.0.0alpha*.fc12 packages

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

How reproducible:
go back in time and (have yum) install dhcpv6-client-2.0.0alpha*.fc12 on a rawhide system and then (have yum) install dhclient

Steps to Reproduce:
1. (yum) install a recent version of dhclient
Actual results:
doesn't remove dhcpv6-client-2.0.0alpha*.fc12 package

Expected results:
removes dhcpv6-client-2.0.0alpha*.fc12 package

Additional info:
I just noticed that a system that has been tracking rawhide for quite some time now has both dhcpv6-client-2.0.0alpha4-1.fc12.i686 and dhclient installed. dhclient only obsoletes "dhcpv6-client <= 1.2.0-4".

Apparently dhcpv6-client-2.0.0alpha4-1.fc12.i686 never broke my updates and thus stayed unnoticed for over a year.

I guess there have been only a few releases of dhcpv6-2.0.0alpha*.fc12 (see http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=199 ). Most likely is that these were rawhide only releases. But there might be some more systems with comparable versions of dhcpv6-client still installed. That might justify a more broad obsolete of dhcpv6-client.
