Comment 1 Josef Komenda 2003-06-27 15:08:18 EDT
Was able to remove 4suite, and if I schedule ALL of the Amanda stuff to be
removed, it works - this seems to be breaking Bretm's depsolver code. 
Comment 2 Adrian Likins 2003-06-27 15:33:40 EDT
that appears to be a client side error...

what version of up2date?
Comment 3 Josef Komenda 2003-06-27 15:45:25 EDT
Seems to be a client side error or AS - RH9 works lovely. Closing.
Comment 4 Josef Komenda 2003-06-27 15:49:09 EDT
Silly me, shouldn't close this, should dump over to Alikins.
