    newer version than the one shipped with the IBM Rational
    ClearCase and ClearQuest product, the installation fails due
    a newer package already being present on the system.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed on the IBM Rational ClearCase 8.0.0.x Releases. The
    GSKit has been updated to a newer version that has an
    updated installation mechanism, preventing this problem.
