Description Ian McInerney 2022-02-11 16:42:06 UTC
Description of problem:

When running a DNF update on my Fedora 34 system, it prints package resolution errors for nodejs packages because the main nodejs package has developed a dependency on /usr/bin/pwsh, which is not satisfiable in the Fedora repo.

Error message printed:

 Problem 1: cannot install the best update candidate for package nodejs-1:14.18.3-1.fc34.x86_64
  - nothing provides /usr/bin/pwsh needed by nodejs-1:14.19.0-2.fc34.x86_64

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



It looks like the nodejs spec for Fedora 35 removes the executable bit from several Powershell scripts in the corepack package, but the Fedora 34 spec does not (F35 removal: https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/nodejs/blob/f35/f/nodejs.spec#_593). The flag removal probably needs to happen in the Fedora 34 specfile as well.

(side note: maybe adding basic gating tests on installability for nodejs would be a good way to catch this? Since if this is uninstallable, it breaks the rest of the ecosystem).
