and ... "that replaced..."

And I also wrote:

# rpm -qa lease-h

So now, as before I last wrote:

# rpm -qa | grep fedora

I don't know how to remove a package that isn't installed, so I tried 
removing the package that supposedly got "replaced". :-p

<aside>wonders how/why yum-utils ever doesn't get installed</aside>

# yum-config-manager --disable rawhide
(at least 70 lines of output, more than can fit on screen at once,
none of which indicate any apparent degree of success disabling anything)


ISTR many times in the past having trouble turning onto the fork instead of 
keeping on Rawhide, and solving the dilemma with something along the lines of:

# rpm -e --nodeps fedora-release-rawhide
# rpm -Uvh fedora-release-<post-fork>

When I saw the post I replied to I thought finally the forking would no 
longer be vexing me.  :-(
