Comment 1 David King 2017-11-10 07:27:38 UTC
Simple Scan is not in EPEL, only in RHEL. However, packages in EPEL are explicitly forbidden from being updated versions of the versions in RHEL:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL#What_is_Extra_Packages_for_Enterprise_Linux_.28or_EPEL.29.3F

"EPEL packages are usually based on their Fedora counterparts and will never conflict with or replace packages in the base Enterprise Linux distributions."

Simple-scan pbone search results

Hi David,

Are you sure?

I went to post this over on RHEL, but could not find it in the pull down.  So I looked in pbone.net and its is only in EPEL and Nux (I attached search result).
I also redid my "whatprovides".

Would you please re-evaluate your statement?  Maybe simple-scan is know by another name in RHEL?

Many thanks,
-T

$ yum --enablerepo=* whatprovides simple-scan
