Hi, i'm using the rvc (RPM Version Compare) tool from here.
I use this with my scripts to compare versions of installed rpms and it works great if the version numbers
are of the same type.
If i compare kernel version A=2.6.9-42.0.8.EL with B=2.6.9-40.0.8.EL the program returns
that A is newer than B which is correct.
But when i compare kernel version A=2.6.9-42.0.8.EL with B=2.6.9-42.EL the program returns
that B is newer than A which is incorrect.
Does anyone have tips or solution how to handle this.
Is there another tool to use when comparing version numbers?
