Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2002-12-03 16:58:15 UTC
Yes. It has a higher epoch, though.

Comment 2 Bernd Bartmann 2002-12-04 12:56:03 UTC
Ok, I didn't even know that an EPOCH existed at all. But how can I get the EPOCH
from the filename? This makes system maintainance much harder than necessary.
Everyone who looks at the filename expects to see full versioning informations.

Comment 3 Bert de Bruijn 2002-12-04 13:56:07 UTC
$ rpm -q --qf '%{epoch}\n'  xinetd
2

(rpm --querytags lists all keywords)
