Has anyone ever come across the behaviour described below, preferably under
some variant of RedHat?
Consider a directory containing about a number of rpms. Some of them are
installed, some of them aren't. rpm -Uhv * in the directory tells me all
about the already installed rpms, but completely fails to install the others.
Would this be considered a bug, or am I simply going about it the wrong way?
The alternative approach is to test eaach rpm individually, build a list
of those that are not installed, and then rpm -Uhv $list.
I am deliberatly not posting any specific version information right now ;-)
