Description Michael Stefaniuc 2002-10-24 08:08:17 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020827

Description of problem:
Due to bugs #76626 and #76627 (gated obsoletes zebra and zebra obsoletes gated)
I added "zebra*" to the package exceptions list, but this had no effect and
zebra was replaced by gated.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install zebra
2. add "zebra*" to the package exceptions list
3. run "up2date -u"

Actual Results:  zebra is replaced by gated.

Expected Results:  zebra shouldn't be replaced.

Additional info:

Adding also "gated*" to the package exception list prevents zebra from being
replaced, but this is only a workaround.
There is no way to know what package will obsolete in the future an other
package and put that also in the exceptions list.

I see i forgot the up2date versions: up2date-2.8.39-1.7.2 and up2date-2.8.39-1.7.3
Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2003-01-15 01:01:47 EST
This should be fixed in later versions by two

   support for "blacklisting" bad obsoletes like the
   zebra<->gated circle

   close attention to the skip list in these cases
