Description Andrew C Aitchison 2007-02-22 12:48:29 UTC
Description of problem:

The thunderbird package in FC6 has epoch 0, but the package in updates has
no Epoch at all.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

thunderbird-0:1.5.0.7-4.fc6.x86_64.rpm
thunderbird-(none):1.5.0.9-7.fc6.x86_64.rpm

Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/6/x86_64/os/Fedora/RPMS/thunderbird-1.5.0.7-4.fc6.x86_64.rpm
 wget
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/6/x86_64/thunderbird-1.5.0.9-7.fc6.x86_64.rpm


2.
rpmquery -p --qf '%{name}-%{epoch}:%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}.rpm\n' thunderbird*
thunderbird-0:1.5.0.7-4.fc6.x86_64.rpm
thunderbird-(none):1.5.0.9-7.fc6.x86_64.rpm

yum is happy that thunderbird-1.5.0.9-7.fc6.x86_64.rpm is newer than
thunderbird-1.5.0.7-4.fc6.x86_64.rpm but I have tools that think that
Epoch 0 is newer than Epoch (none).

Comment 2 Christopher Aillon 2007-03-04 20:35:23 UTC
This isn't a bug in thunderbird, really.  Epoch 0 is the same as no epoch.  It
only matters because rpm python bindings are broken and produces the wrong
result for the version comparison.  See the dupe.
