Description Michael Schwendt 2003-10-11 17:51:34 UTC

Description of problem:
[Probably too early for this report.]

rpmdb-redhat has been replaced with rpmdb-fedora-0.95-0.20031010, which moves
the dependency universe database from




But in /usr/lib/rpm/rpmpopt-4.2.1, the --redhatprovides and --redhatrequires
alias definitons still access /usr/lib/rpmdb/i386-redhat-linux/redhat and hence

Either the "rpm" package needs an update or the two alias definitions need to be
overridden in the "redhat-rpm-config" package (which might become
fedora-rpm-config in the future ;).

The "rpmdb-fedora" package defines %_solve_dbpath in /etc/rpm/macros.solve. That
macro could be used as soon as it is updated to define the correct path, too.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm --redhatprovides kernel
2. rpm -qa 'rpmdb*'

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

Comment 1 Michael Schwendt 2003-10-11 17:55:00 UTC
For cross-reference:
bug #106844
(%_solve_dbpath macro is wrong in rpmdb-fedora package)

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2003-10-13 15:51:41 UTC
Both the --redhatprovides and --redhatrequires popt aliases are
obsolete/legacy as suggested packages are looked up
for install failures. Get rpmdb-fedora installed
"correctly" (whatever that means) and rpm should
self-configure to use.

Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2003-11-16 11:03:32 UTC
Just for reference, the final release of Fedora Core 1 moved the
rpmdb-fedora back to /usr/lib/rpmdb/i386-redhat-linux/redhat.
