Description Valdis Kletnieks 2002-08-02 20:50:58 UTC
Description of Problem:
Problematic RPM numbers for 'rpm -F'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
glibc-2.2.90-17.i686.rpm

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. 
2. 
3. 

Actual Results:
Whenever glibc-2.2.6 comes out, 'rpm -F' will refuse to install it because .90
is bigger than .6

Expected Results:


Additional Information:
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?

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-03 20:35:35 UTC
glibc 2.2.90 is CVS glibc 2.3, so it is newer than glibc 2.2.6
