How exactly to use the tag "Obsoletes:" in a spec file ?
I need to offer texlive to users on Centos-5.6, so I packaged it (based
on a Mandriva src.rpm), and that works.
But I want rpm to *replace* tetex by texlive, instead of just adding
texlive, when users do a :
$ yum install texlive
(we have a local repo here).
So I added this line in texlive.spec :
and of course I rebuilt the package, and (of course) that just don't
work, despite tetex is listed among the Obsoleted packages :
$ rpm -qp --obsoletes texlive-20110312-0phn.x86_64.rpm
dvi2tty <= 5.3.1
kpathsea <= 20100722
kpathsea-devel <= 20100722
kpathsea-static-devel <= 20100722
pdfjam <= 1.21
ps2eps <= 1.64
(tetex is the CentOS one : tetex-3.0-33.8.el5_5.6)
Can someone explain me why this fails, and eventually an other way to
solve this problem ?
