I sent a message about this last week and I know it hit the archives (I can
see it) but I never saw the actual message. Is there a problem with
attachments or possibly some other problem?
The subject of that message was the same as this: a complex update under
some circumstances will fail. With an update the rpmUtils updates-test.py
script you can see a failure to update a kernel if more than one kernel is
already installed. To see what should happen, run this:
python ./updates-test.py rpmUtils.arch.canonArch=x86_64 \
sparc64=x86_64 | grep kernel
And you should see
kernel.x86_64 0:1-2 updated by kernel.x86_64 0:1-3
python ./updates-test.py rpmUtils.arch.canonArch=\'sparc64v\'
doesn't work even though sparc64 is supposed to be compatible with sparc64v.
(There is a comment to that effect labelled "hack hack hack" in arch.py.)
I have what seems like a reasonable fix for that which I am happy to repost.
