Comment 1 Petr Muller 2012-03-08 08:51:48 EST
That's because the redhat-release package has some weird %{VERSION} of the relevant rpm. I do not think this is a fault of beakerlib. As soon as the package will say it is from RHEL7, we can perhaps adjust the regexen, but when it says the RHEL is 6.90...

What I now see @ zelo:
# rpm -q --whatprovides redhat-release
[root@zelo beakerlib]# rlGetDistroVariant 
[root@zelo beakerlib]# rlGetDistroRelease

Anyways, I checked in something which should help and not break other versions.

beakerlib-1.6-1 is already in fedora

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)
