Description Demetri Mouratis 2005-12-16 02:17:14 EST
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7 Description of problem: I've created a custom RPM that has a Conflicts line on previous releases of itself. This is intended to enforce the non-upgradability of the RPM. Contrary to the expected behavior, RPM ignore the conflicts and attempts to install the new release. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.2.3-24_nonptl: How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create RPM with Conflicts on previous release of itself 2. Up release number and create a new release 3. Install the new release 4. Observe the failed conflict Actual Results: I ended up with two releases of the RPM installed. Expected Results: The RPM command (or up2date) should have failed at dependency resolution.

I tried added forward looking conflicts as well, to no avail: [root@dev3-rep01 root]# rpm -q ncc-role-report ncc-business-objects ncc-business-objects-config ncc-role-report-18.104.22.168-3203 ncc-business-objects-22.214.171.124-16 ncc-business-objects-config-126.96.36.199-3203 [root@dev3-rep01 root]# rpm -q --conflicts ncc-business-objects ncc-business-objects < 188.8.131.52-16 ncc-business-objects > 184.108.40.206-16 [root@dev3-rep01 root]# rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/noarch/ncc-business-objects-220.127.116.11-17.noarch.rpm Preparing... ########################################### [100%] Upgrading ncc-business-objects is not supported.

Can you supply a simple reproducer illustrating the functionality that you desire?
Comment 3 Demetri Mouratis 2006-01-11 14:47:52 EST
# rpm -q ncc-business-objects You should see ncc-business-objects-220.127.116.11-11 installed. # rpm -Uvh ncc-business-objects-18.104.22.168-12.noarch.rpm This should fail with a message like: error: Failed dependencies: ncc-business-objects > 22.214.171.124-11 conflicts with ncc-business-objects-126.96.36.199-11:
Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2006-08-05 07:39:33 EDT
You appear to want to have rpm dependencies guarantee that only a single instance of a package can be installed. There are many reasons why rpm dependencies are not the correct place to implement that guarantee, mostly because the ability to reinstall an existing package is often useful to insure that, indeed, a package is installed correctly. Try adding a test in %pre for a previous identical instance of a package if you must insure a single instance of a package is installed. WONTFIX
