Any RH people out there?
I'm trying to run up2date. I've got about 50 packages that need updated, but it won't update any of them because:
package spamassassin-3.1.0-1 (which is newer than spamassassin-3.0.5-3.el4) is already installed
I know that. I want it to ignore that package. I have:
6. fileSkipList ['spamassassin*']
20. pkgSkipList ['no.kernel*', ' spamassassin*']
But I keep getting that same error. I won't rollback spamassassin to the version on the RH site because the new one is light-years better. And I could update each package individually, but darn it, this is why I wanted to use up2date to begin with!

Virtual chocolate to someone who can figure out what I'm doing wrong. :)

Edit: And I'm buying myself chocolate. See the space before spamassassin on the skip list entry? Yep, that was the problem. I am an idiot.

Do an "rpm -q --whatrequires spamassassin" to see if anything depends on it. On my system, evolution requires it. Maybe you should remove those things, allow up2date to run, and then re-install them.

On a related note, if you have any spare hardware at home, you can make yourself a test box using CentOS 4. CentOS shadows Red Hat Enterprise Linux, so it'll give you a good idea of what's going to happen and you can configure it in the same way.
