7.2 ksymoops obsoletes "kernel-utils" yet "kernel-utils" appears as part of a 7.2 errata
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:02:09 EST
Description of Problem:
In stock 7.2, there is no "kernel-utils" package. There is
however, a ksymoops package that obsoletes "kernel-utils".
At some point, an errata was released that included
"kernel-utils" for 7.2. At least
to include it.
Aside from the problem of having a package obsoleting
something else that could potentially be installed alongside
it, up2date has issues with this.
Newest versions of the client will refuse to install a package
that will be obsoleted by something already installed. In this
case, that means "kernel-utils" wont be installed because it
is obsoleted by "ksymoops".
