Summary: kernel-$flavor-base isn't removed on update
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.2
Version: Factory
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Major
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Kernel

See fate 307154

The new kernel-$flavor packages contain everything that kernel-$flavor-base
contains, so when updating from 11.1, -base should be removed. More precisely:

11.1 -> 11.2
kernel-$flavor + kernel-$flavor-base -> kernel-$flavor
only kernel-$flavor-base -> kernel-$flavor-base

And idealy if kernel-$flavor is installed and the users selects
kernel-$flavor-base, they should get a dependency conflict, suggesting to
remove kernel-$flavor (and vice versa).

Unfortunatelly all my attempts to solve this via rpm dependencies resulted
either in
a) zypper dup updating both main and base
b) zypper dup updating main even if there was only base previously
c) zypper dup trying to update both and complaning that they conflict (if I add
a Conflicts:)
so I didn't add any obsoletes/conflicts yet, in order not to make it even
worse.
