Question Package Management tool doesn't see installed packages (FC1)

i've seen this in other threads like: > Forums > Linux - Software >packages could not be located! but installed!!
but haven't found a solution anywhere.

I run the Package Management tool and select the X Software Development group.
Upon clicking Update, I get a Packages Not Found error:
Unlocateable package     Required by
netpbm                   ('netpbm-progs', '9.24', '12.1.1')
XFree86-libs             ('XFree86-twm', '4.3.0', '55')
XFree86-libs             ('XFree86-xfs', '4.3.0', '55')
XFree86-libs             ('XFree86', '4.3.0', '55')
I have already run rpm --rebuilddb

rpm thinks all of this stuff has been installed:
[root@www tmp]# rpm -q netpbm
[root@www tmp]# rpm -q netpbm-progs
[root@www tmp]# rpm -q XFree86-libs
[root@www tmp]# rpm -q XFree86-twm
[root@www tmp]# rpm -q XFree86-xfs
[root@www tmp]# rpm -q XFree86
Any help is appreciated.

looks like redhat-config-packages is just crap from the get-go:

Same problem here - of course, with different rpms.

So, on another post (possibly another site), there is a program called "red-carpet" at that was recommended. I installed it and ran it. Cleared up the problem. Nice this is that you can run it in parrallel with up2date!!! I just downloaded the red-carpet and not the gui, though I imagine the desktop gui works just fine. In the meantime, I will chalk this up to an apparently long standing bug with RH software...
