Hi all... anyone has any idea on how I could work around bug 116299?
Basically (in FC1), in certain instances the "Obsoletes:" tag is being
ignored by rpm in such a way that I cannot change the naming of a
package (ie: if I try to install the new package, which "Obsoletes:"
another older package with almost the same contents but a different
name, the rpm process fails with a "conflicting files" message instead
of replacing the old package with the new one).
$ rpm -e oldpackage --nodeps
$ rpm -ihv newpackage
Maybe I'm making some packaging mistake, but the exact same thing
fine in RedHat 7.3/8.0/9...
