rpm 3.0.3 freshen incorrectly ignores package names on command line
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
Installed Cartman retail box w/2.2.12-20 kernel on P-200 with FOOF bug
(workaround reported enabled OK).
D/L'd 6.1 update packages from a mirror using installed NcFTP 3.0 client.
In the /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/ directory, where I D/L'd, said:
rpm -Fvh *.rpm
to which the response was:
rpm: no packages given for install
Tried with only one package; same result. Tried -ivh with lpr-0.48,
'already installed'. Tried -Uvh, 'already installed'.
Priority medium, urgency high; have to ship these boxes Friday; would
prefer they be complete. Yes, I know; we only paid $50... :-)
This is typical behavior when there's nothing to freshen. There's
a better error message in rpm-3.0.4 however :-)
