Description Joshua Jensen 1999-06-05 00:04:35 UTC
When upgrading or installing multiple packages are
attempted,  the operation will fail if one of the specified
packages is already installed.  Example:
rpm -ivh egcs* cpp* kernel-headers* bin86*
will fail simply because one of these packages was already
installed.  RPM should simply note that a package is already
installed (or is already newer), then go on with installing
or upgrading everything else specified.  Could I write a
"foreach" loop in my shell and simply go one package at a
time?  Yes, but I shouldn't have to and this wouldn't work
for dependances anyway.  FYI:  This RPM bug did not exist
before RHL 6.0
