Description of problem:
both db1-1.85-8 and gnome-libs- both contain


Either gnome-libs probably shouldn't provide these files since if you  obsolete
db1 then you can't have db1-devel installed.
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2002-09-04 14:53:27 EDT
See explanation on #73138 - do we need an explicit Conflicts? The fact that the
files conflict should be enough right... 

db1-devel isn't intended to be installable; the point of moving db1 into
gnome-libs was to kill any compilation vs. db1.
Comment 2 Jim Radford 2002-09-04 17:27:19 EDT
I think adding an explicit conflict is the least that should be done.  Just
leaving conflicting files seems rude.  Do I have to crosscheck every file from
every package just to decide what to install?  Why not just leave db1 as a
separate package?  Clearly it is required by gnome-libs otherwise it wouldn't be
there.  Why hide that fact?
