Re: F8 -> F9 rpms -- Complete bollocks.

I mean it doesn't even look like there are F9 equivalents for various F8 packages I would call 'important' like fedora-usermgmt-shadow-utils. Part of the problem is that yum update completely implodes with dependency problems because of these legacy RPMs. I know some of them have F9 equivalents that were installed, but not all. I'm still working on a way to grep for all the packages that have both F8 and F9 on that system so I can remove the older ones.

So, can someone explain to me why this is so? Or give me a way to find the duplicate packages a little more painlessly and dumping the rpm db into a file and manually looking for them?

Okay, I have more information on this. I think my rpmdb is completely FUBAR. This is what I'm seeing when I 'yum update php' (for example)

ependencies Resolved

 Package                 Arch       Version          Repository        Size

Installing for dependencies:
openssl i386 0.9.8b-17.fc8 fedora 1.4 M

Note, all these are FC8 updates (apparently).

Now, when I query rpm for php packages I get this:

[root sulla temp]# rpm -qa | grep php

So, it looks to me like I have F9 packages installed (at v5.2.5-7) but that the /updated/ php version is 5.2.6-2 F8? I'm getting the feeling this upgrade wasn't as complete as the GUI told me it was.

Now, what do I do to fix this?
