And I've tested it a lot (especially its ability to upgrade old db1 format to the db3 one). So, it sounds wrong for me that Owl's rpm 4.2 rejects to upgrade db1. > My propose to developers: remove from %pre section of rpm.spec file, > checking for old database format because it supported. We will remove that support once all our users will migrate to the new version, because db1 code is unclear and outdated. > Sorry, downloading of all rpms is to expensive for me and I check1ng > "teoretically". I not trust that "make installworld" solve my problem. Yes, it will solve it! There are a lot of magic around Owl's rpm 4.2 in native/Owl/build/installworld.sh. Just look inside and you will find how database upgrade is performed. Threre is no way to perform database upgrade from inside of the rpm package. > -- > Best regards, > Ruslan mailto:ruslan@...l.lviv.ua -- (GM)
