I downloaded the traball and made a rpm; which created
perl-spamassassin.rpm and mail-spamassassin.rpm. I installed
perl-spamassassin first using yast and then spamassassin using yast. The
spamassassin rpm failed to installed but when i do a rpm -qa
spamassassin it shows both 3.1 and 3.2 installed. I look in yast and it
shows 3.2 only. I look in /etc/mail/spamassassin and all the 3.1 files
are still there along with 3.2pre file. Should i uninstall and then
reinstall and if i do this, what will happen to all the existing rules
and what-not?
