I think changing distroverpkg worked. In the last 3 days, I installed both
yum and whitebox-release rpm twice using the force option. Rpm - q reported
they were installed. Yum update base and a .xml file but no packages. (I
had previously run up2date.) So I believe it now working. Won't know for
sure there is a new package to try it on.
