Re: [Evolution] new redcarpet ?

You should always try rpm -Fvh first. It will update RPM's already on the
system. There are several instances where you must use the --force with
Uvh however. If the RPM you're trying to replace is a different version,
as in another vendor's binary RPM, then sometimes RPM can't figure out
that the dependancies are actually met, so you MUST --force it because
--nodeps won't work most of the time in this situation. If you can use
Fvh, then so be it, but I know for a fact that both Red-Carpet and up2date
use --force when needed.

Do not do that.  Ever.

If you do that, you don't know what you are doing.

You are fucking up the consistency of your dependency graph.
