Description of problem:
I have the non-commercial version of "SSH Secure Shell for Workstations 3.2"
(from ftp.ssh.com) installed in RPM format. When I run up2date, I see the
package openssh-3.4p1-2 wrongly listed as an update. Selecting it and letting
up2date do its work removes the package ssh-3.2.0 from my system and installs
the OpenSSH package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. remove all OpenSSH packages
2. download source of non-commercial SSH version
3. build it
4. install it in RPM format using `checkinstall'
5. run up2date
Actual Results: `openssh-3.4p1-2' is listed as an update package.
Expected Results: There should be no OpenSSH packages listed, as none are
installed on my system.
$ rpm -qa openssh\*
$ rpm -q ssh
$ rpm -q --provides ssh
ssh = 3.2.0-1
Our openssh packages "obsoletes" ssh, and up2date is following that
suggestion and replacing ssh with openssh. Ie, not a bug.
If you dont want this to happen, you can place ssh on the
package skip list.
