Description Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak 2000-11-22 14:15:45 UTC
When upgrading Red Hat Linux using rpm -Fvh <redhat>/updates/7.0/i386/*
the upgrade fails on some systems, when there are multiple versions
of the same package and at least two of them are newer than the package
currently installed. Then rpm -F tries to install _both_ newer version
and, of course, fails because the two versions of the same package
usually conflicts with each other.

The good example is the stock install of Red Hat 7.0 and the
glibc packages (in updates/i386 there are currently two versions of
glibc - 2.1.9x and 2.2).

I think it would be better if rpm tries to install only the newest
of multiple packages of the same base name given on the command line.
