Message No...sorry...this is one of the beautifu design flaws of RPM. RPM
always assumes you want the latest version of a package, no mater
what. So in the above situation RPM itself is not able to handle the
dependancy chain. I know that some folks have hacked at this with a
Yum plugin.

Current/RHN reflect this by only having the latest version of a
package available in the channel. I believe RHN will let you manually
download any version and all versions are contianed in the
listAllPackages API call.

Message I've run into an issue recently and I was wondering if its desired
behavior or not.

I have three packages:

A-r1
A-r2
B-r1

All of these packages are in the same channel directory, but only the
newest packages show up - A-r1 does not. Normally this wouldn't be a
problem, but in this case B-r1 depends on A-r1 - so B-r1 cannot be
installed because A-r1 is not showing in the channel. Is this the
desired behavior? I thought that RHN allowed you to install any
previous version of a patch or something from their channels...

Thanks,
Jared
