Description of problem:
When starting the redhat-package-manager from an existing Psyche install (since
anaconda is broken with Promise RAID controllers, argh) the package manager
doesn't notice that installed packages need upgraded. So there's no way using
this tool to install the new packages from Phoebe.
It also doesn't check to see if a needed parent package is part of the install
(ie, php-mysql complains that php is needed, when php is also chosen).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot into Psyche.
2. Put CD #1 in and allow the autorun
Actual Results: The package manager refused to install any packages
Expected Results: The package manager should have installed any packages that
were new versions.
This isn't something which redhat-config-packages is intended to support at the
