Description Radek Bíba 2007-03-06 22:10:07 UTC
Description of problem:
When updating a box, this became a showstopper:

Error: kdemultimedia-extras conflicts with kdemultimedia-extras-nonfree <

This is pretty interesting, because:
$ rpm -q kdemultimedia-extras-nonfree

denotes that the installed version is NOT lower than 3.5.6-3. I don't know what
should be fixed here.

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

Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2007-03-07 01:53:16 UTC
This is due to a wrong epoch in the Conflicts tag. The Conflicts lists epoch 6, 
whereas kdemultimedia-extras-nonfree-3.5.6-3.lvn6 actually has no epoch (which 
is essentially the same as epoch 0). 0:3.5.6-3.lvn6 < 6:3.5.6-3, thus the 
problem. Either the Conflicts needs to be fixed, or the epoch of 
kdemultimedia-extras-nonfree needs to be bumped to 6 to match the other

Thanks Kevin, fixing asap.

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2007-03-07 15:35:21 UTC
Looks like Michael caught it before I got to it, thanks.

- fix the fatal "Conflicts" with kdemultimedia-extras-nonfree, which
  breaks upgrades - the package does not have Epoch 6

Comment 4 Radek Bíba 2007-03-08 22:56:43 UTC
Yeah, everything is OK now. Thanks!
(and you're right, no kittens were harmed :) )
