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, Ruslan mailto:ruslan@...l.lviv.ua
