Aggrivating version numbers
Last modified: 2016-11-24 09:56:56 EST
Description of Problem:
Problematic RPM numbers for 'rpm -F'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Whenever glibc-2.2.6 comes out, 'rpm -F' will refuse to install it because .90
is bigger than .6
I've gotten bit by this on RawHide before - something will use 2.8.3, then
2.8.94, then when 2.8.4 comes out you have a headache in upgrading. Wouldn't
'glib-2.2.5-90.17' have worked just as well?
glibc 2.2.90 is CVS glibc 2.3, so it is newer than glibc 2.2.6
