[OpenAFS] kmod-openafs versioning on RHEL5
Wed, 13 Feb 2008 16:49:48 -0800
After building new kmod packages for the latest RHEL5 kernel I
discovered that rpm is very unhappy with the naming convention. Yum
refuses to install the package claiming that
kmod-openafs-1.4.5-126.96.36.199_53.1.4.el5 is newer than
kmod-openafs-1.4.5-188.8.131.52_53.1.13.el5. To install this package I have
to use rpm with "--force".
Red Hat updates their kernels in the above fashion regularly so I
anticipate this problem will continue to crop up in the not too distant
Before I create my own SRPM to work around this issue, are there plans
to deal with this?
Thanks for your time,
