Description Michal Jaegermann 2004-09-30 06:57:55 UTC
Description of problem: Something went really funny with package dependencies in an updates set 'rpmdb-fedora-2.91-0.20040929'. It looks to me that the problem is not in yum but in rpm libraries. After failed attempts to use yum I tried directly 'rpm -Fvh ...' with a bunch of packages from that update set and ended up with: error: Failed dependencies: linc >= 0.1.6 is needed by (installed) pyorbit-2.0.0-3.1 linc = 1.0.3 is needed by (installed) linc-devel-1.0.3-6 while 'rpm -q linc' responds with 'linc-1.0.3-6' and 'rpm -q linc-devel' with 'linc-devel-1.0.3-6'. The error appears to trip yum. It seems that the real culprit is ORBit2, though, but why it triggers this problem is far from clear to me. Still, when other packages are got updated then ORBit2, and ORBit2-devel, could be updated as well but only then. Originally yum was unhappy both with 2.1.3-1 version and also after an update to yum-2.1.4-1; but as I said, this does not look really as a yum fault. I also tried that on a local repository generated with 'createrepo' on a directory with copies of all needed rpms. Regardless if 'linc' packages were present or not during a createrepo run results were exactly the same - i.e. yum was bailing out complaining about needed 'linc'.
