    use the 'force' flag... "-f" with those packages to force the install... so...

    Code:
    up2date -f caching-nameserver
    or do

    "up2date --configure" to change the config for up2date so those packages aren't in the skiplist anymore.

    Go on, have a guess
    Be aware that if you force install that particular rpm and you use DNS on your server, you will wipe out your named.conf and thus destroy your DNS server - it's probably in your exclude list for a very good reason.

    make a backup of your named.conf then....

    Though I installed that rpm through up2date a couple days ago on my RHEL3 server, (Before I knew about the possibility of it breaking things), and my named.conf is fine. So there must be some other cause (not simply installing the rpm).

    yeah it did wipe named.conf but it was no worry as i had backed up named.conf so no problems arose.
