Description Paul 2003-04-10 05:04:36 EDT

Description of problem:
I was upgrading RH8.0 to RH9 and I had RH8.0 documentation installed.  So, I
could goto RH->Documentation->Customization Guide (CG) to get documentation in
HTML form for RH8.0.  When I used the Documentation disk to install RH9
documentation (via autorun) for the CG, it did not install RH9 CG--it reported
that I already had CG installed.  Yes, I did--but it was RH8.0.  

This was true for each document guide (cg, gsg, maximum rpm, rg, rg, ig) except
for (glossary, sap)-which were not previously installed.  

I also tried rpm -Uvh *.rpm from /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/ which is described
under the INSTALL TAB, but that didn't seem to work either.  

Finally, I manually (with rpm) removed each document component (6 in all) and
then re-ran the documentation disk via autorun.  All 8 documents properly
installed RH9 HTML documentation. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rhl-cg-en-9-2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RH8 documentation via autorun
2. Upgrade from RH8.0 to RH9 
3. Install RH9 documentation via autorun.  The only choices for adding new
documents were SAP and Glossary--both new components.
    

Actual Results:  New RH9 documention was not available in HTML from the
RH->Documentation->Customization Guide menu--RH8.0 CG was there.

Expected Results:  The installation disk should have known that RH8.0
documentation is not RH9 documentation at the very least.  It should have given
me a choice of keeping old documentation or UPGRADING or BOTH.  It did not.  It
kept the older versions.

Using the command line, I was able to upgrade from the RHL 8.0 Customization
Guide to the RHL 9 Customization Guide:

# rpm -Uvh rhl-cg-en-8.0-2.noarch.rpm
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:rhl-cg-en              ########################################### [100%]
# rpm -Uvh rhl-cg-en-9-2.noarch.rpm
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:rhl-cg-en              ########################################### [100%]
[root@falcon root]#

It is true that the autorun graphical interface will not let you upgrade to a
newer package, that but is true for any package you have installed, not just
docs. Please file a separate bug against the redhat-config-packages component to
request the ability to upgrade a package already installed from a Red Hat CD-ROM.

What error message are you getting when you try to run the rpm -Uvh command to
upgrade to the RHL 9 rhl-cg-en package?
Comment 2 Tammy Fox 2003-05-20 11:01:55 EDT
Closing due to lack of activity and because I can not reproduce the bug when
trying to install from the command line.
