Subject: Re[2]: Rpm updating bug?

Hello Galaxy,

 While I investigate my problem, I found that:
1) In changes-current file:
rpm 4.2 (with support for db1-format packages database re-introduced
to allow for upgrades from older versions of Owl). 
2) rpm 4.2 reject to install because old db1-format database found.
3) rpmd from rpm 4.2 distribution reject to upgrade database to new
format because phases of the Moon.

My propose to developers: remove from %pre section of rpm.spec file,
checking for old database format because it supported.

Sorry, downloading of all rpms is to expensive for me and I check1ng
"teoretically". I not trust that "make installworld" solve my problem.

Best regards,
