I am trying to build an RPM that when installed/upgraded checks the present
version of the package and depending on if the present version is a certain
version or higher -> do something if lower -> do something else.
i.e if present version is 1.0 or higher -> do something
if present present version is < 1.0 -> do something else.
I have been told that I shouldn't use rpm command (i.e 'rpm-qa') in the
inside the %pre or %prerun scriptlet as this can cause an RPM - how can I
query the existing version in the rpmbuild/spec file?
Any pointers would be great.
