OT, but I'm sure most on the list can benefit. There's nothing worse
than busting your system whilst updating it.
On other RedHat systems I find it usefull to use the rollback feature in
up2date or manually specify "--repackage" on the rpm commandline.
This would be especially helpfull when updating the beloved mythtv box
as WAF must be kept high at all costs.
At the command line I would use:
rpm -Fvh --repackage somepackage.rpm
or in RedHat's up2date, enabling "rollbacks" in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date
Of course, on my FC3 myth system I am using apt configured back to
Ultimately, apt is calling rpm but I cannot find where I can modify the
default behaviour to call rpm with the --repackage switch.
Where can I configure this behaviour as the default?
There does not seem to be a command line option to apt ( which is a pity
) to enable the --repackage option add-hoc.
