Hello,
same for me on F8 with yum-utils-1.1.14-4.fc8 - maybe it is intentional?:

# package-cleanup --dupes
Setting up yum
abcde-2.3.99.6-4.fc8.noarch
abcde-2.3.99.6-6.noarch
# rpm -q abcde kernel-headers
abcde-2.3.99.6-6
abcde-2.3.99.6-4.fc8
kernel-headers-2.6.23.1-42.fc8
kernel-headers-2.6.25.14-69.fc8

Comment 2 seth vidal 2008-09-08 13:02:18 UTC
anything starting with kernel is intentionally ignored.

Comment 3 Tom London 2008-09-08 13:24:10 UTC
But does that make sense?

Newer packages like kernel-headers and kernel-firmware are updated, not installed, so there shouldn't be duplicate versions of them.

Wouldn't it make sense for package-cleanup to only ignore dupes on packages that it "installs only"?
