Description seppo 1999-12-22 14:12:55 UTC
I succeeded to upgrade NS-commom from RedHat 6.1 CD but couldn't upgrade
Netscape Communicator. rpm tells me that netscape-common-4.61-12.i386.rpm
is not installed - so now I cant't either uninstall or reinstall NS common
or upgrade Netscape Communicator.

[root@redhat /root]# rpm -i
/mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/netscape-common-4.61-12.i386.rpm
package netscape-common-4.61-12 is already installed
error: /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/netscape-common-4.61-12.i386.rpm cannot be
installed
[root@redhat /root]# rpm -q
/mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/netscape-common-4.61-12.i386.rpm
package /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/netscape-common-4.61-12.i386.rpm is not
installed
[root@redhat /root]# rpm -e
/mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/netscape-common-4.61-12.i386.rpm
package /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/netscape-common-4.61-12.i386.rpm is not
installed

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-12-22 16:49:59 UTC
To query or remove packages, you use the package name, not
the file name.

For example:

rpm -q netscape-common
rpm -e netscape-common

Comment 2 seppo 1999-12-23 08:00:59 UTC
Uninstalling and reinstalling netscape-common didn't solve the problem.
The solution is upgrade netscape-communicator with --nodeps opition:
rpm -U --nodeps /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/netscape-communicator-4.61-12.i386.rpm
