Re: old rpms after upgrade



Peter J. Stieber wrote, On 01/25/2008 10:42 AM:
I have an x86_64 I have upgraded from Fedora 6 -> 7 -> 8. I upgrade using DVDs generated from ISO images provided with each new distribution. I'm worried about left over rpms from prior installs that may eventually cause problems.

$ rpm -qa | grep fc6
enchant-1.3.0-1.fc6
dmidecode-2.7-1.26.1.fc6
keyutils-libs-1.2-2.fc6
mcelog-0.7-1.22.fc6
xorg-x11-filesystem-7.1-2.fc6
libavc1394-0.5.3-1.fc6
keyutils-libs-1.2-2.fc6
keyutils-libs-devel-1.2-2.fc6
gnuchess-5.07-10.fc6
tux-3.2.18-9.fc6

There are others for fc7.

Why does this happen?

What should I do about it?

Pete


Don't worry 'bout it. :)

wget --no-remove-listing \
ftp://mirror.hiwaay.net/redhat/fedora/linux/releases/8/Everything/i386/os/Packages/*fc9*

grep fc6 .listing

The ones you see here, have not needed updated or recompiled since fc6.
Does that help?
